Tax Assessment Worksheet

Postcard Returned by: Carolyn Wilson

Cost: $ 50.61

Hauling Service(s) Provided: Unpaid Garbage bill; April 1 - June 30 2021 Service Period

Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling

Billing Time Period: Quarter 2 (April - June) 2021

Invoice Date(s): April 1 - June 30

Garbage Hauler: Republic Services

Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): The property owner indicated that they paid the garbage bill to the hauler. When they got the invoice and final notice, they called the hauler and the Customer Service Representative indicated that they did not have any outstanding amount that was owed on their account. Therefore they are confused as to why they have an assessment.

Staff Comments: Hauler records show that there was no payment made during Quarter 2 2021. There was a payment of $160.63 that was received from the property owner in Quarter 3 2021 and was therefore applied to the Quarter 3 2021 invoice. Since the Quarter 2 2021 delinquent invoice had already been sent to the city to be assessed, the account showed that there were not any outstanding amounts due once the Quarter 3 2021 invoice had been paid. Therefore, staff recommends approving the assessment. Property owner also appeared to be confused by the fact that their bill was lower than normal.  City staff has explained that this is because there was a credit from Quarter 1 2021 of $63.23 for service for a 64-gal cart that was cancelled effective on 02/01/2021. The property owner was notified of this on the initial Quarter 2 2021 invoice that was sent out on April 4, 2021.
