Tax Assessment Worksheet

Postcard Returned by: Fannie Faye Neal

Cost: $76.02

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)

Invoice Date(s): October 1 - December 31

Garbage Hauler: Highland

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I got a letter from you saying that I hadn’t paid for my trash. I sent you all $100 to take care of it, and I shouldn’t owe $76.02. It shouldn’t be going to my taxes because I’ve already paid the $100. I paid it up for 2019. It’s been paid up, what I owe.

Staff Comments: Hauler confirmed that they had not received any payments from the property owner for Quarter 4 2019. The City of St. Paul Assessments Office confirmed that they did receive a payment of $9.61 on 05/12/2020 for the Quarter 4 2019 assessment. This brought the total amount owed from $85.63 to $76.02. There was also a payment of $90.39 paid on the same day for the Quarter 3 2019 assessment. This is most likely what the property owner was referring to when they stated that they made a payment of $100.00. Therefore staff recommends approving the remaining assessment of $76.02.
