  • DIRECT ASSESSMENT FEES MAY BE OVERESTIMATED

    Posted: February 10, 2012 | Posted by NLeonard | No Comments

    Commercial properties in certain areas of California are billed for direct assessment fees (sewer/

    water) on their property tax bill.  These direct assessments are calculated by the building’s square footage and type of use – not actual usage – and these estimated fees are oftentimes incorrect.

    There are companies out there that can help you ascertain if you have been overcharged and help you recover that money.  As an example, Capitol Recovery Advisors will audit your past payments for up to the last three years to determine if you are owed a refund. If they can’t recover a refund, there is no charge.  To see if your area qualifies and/or to begin the process please click here for more information.
