News has gotten out that home owners may be able to get their property taxes adjusted based on the reduction in value of today’s market by petitioning the County of San Mateo Tax Assessor’s Office.    Scammers have found a way to get at home owners by charging for the service. Thing is the county does this for free.

I’ve helped several clients get it done – it’s not hard and you don’t need to pay anyone.  In fact, if you want help, let me know.  I’ll help you with some of the information you’ll need to provide.

After the county sent out an alert I started contacting clients.  This is what I got back, “I also want to thank you for the warning yesterday.  My mom just sent out a payment of $180 for the recalculation of their property tax.  I called her immediately so she could put a stop on the check.  I think she stopped it just in time.”
