  1. Starting in early November 2021, the Assessor’s Office has refused to respond to emails, letters and phone calls asking them to fill out a Form 84. A Form 84 must go to the Tax Collector’s office when a property is mistakenly reappraised. My property was wrongly reappraised to market value. An audit of this mistake was made and a letter stated it was a mistakee. No Form 84 was sent to the Tax Collector’s office. Thus, the Tax Collector appraised me $15,000 in taxes I didn’t owe. I now have delinquent taxes I can’t pay and can have my home of 40 years sold out from under me (despite being disabled). I was never notified my home was reappraised or even sent a tax bill in 2021. I only found out about delinquent taxes as I investigated on the Internet. Then, even that information was removed for awhile and the public couldn’t do an Internet search. This is criminal negligence. I hired a property attorney with years of experience dealing with Los Angeles County’s taxing and assessing departments. Even he can’t accomplish anything.
