Tax Assessment Worksheet
Postcard Returned by: Mark A Dezelar
Cost: $2.71
Hauling Service(s) Provided: Garbage Service Q4 Oct 1-Dec 31 2019
Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling
Billing Time Period: 4th Quarter of 2019 (October 1 - December 31)

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that they made a payment for $66.91 on 12/19/2020 on a final invoice of $69.95. They stated that they should not have had an assessment of $2.71 since there should have been a credit of $16 applied to their Q4 2019 bill.
Staff Comments: Hauler confirmed that the property owner was correct in stating that they had credit balance on the account of $16.51 for Q4 2019. Therefore, the total balance due was $44.30 which is why the late fee was only $2.24 instead of the normal amount of $3.04. Hauler also confirmed that Q4 2019 bill of $44.30 for a 35-gallon cart with every other week service was not paid in full until 11/12/2019. The payment was therefore late and resulted in a late fee charge. Staff recommends approving the assessment.
