Tax Assessment Worksheet
Postcard Returned by: Vang Xiong
Cost: $344.92
Hauling Service(s) Provided: Unpaid Garbage Bill; April 1 - June 30
Type of Order/Fee: Trash Hauling
Billing Time Period: Quarter 2 (April - June) 2022
Invoice Date(s): April 1 - June 30
Garbage Hauler: Waste Management
Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:
Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): Property owner stated that Waste Management failed to mail the invoice to the correct address.

Therefore, the invoice should have never been sent to 841 Rose Ave. On 7/25/2022 the property owner called Waste Management and spoke with a Nicole, a customer service representative, who stated that it was Waste Management's fault that the invoices were sent to the wrong address. Therefore the property owner stated that they should not have to pay any assessed late fees.
