Assessor’s office warns of unscrupulous companies

The San Bernardino County Assessor’s Office wants local property owners to be on the look-out for “various unscrupulous private companies (that) are mailing solicitations to property owners offering to file ‘Decline in Value’ review request forms with the Assessor’s Office for fees ranging from $95 to thousands of dollars.”  These applications may be filed by the property owner free of charge directly with the Assessor’s Office.  Information: (877) 885-7654, (909) 387-8307, or online at www.sbassessor.org

If you feel that you are a victim of a misleading mailing, you may contact the state Attorney General’s Public Inquiry Unit at: www.ag.ca.gov/consumers/general.php
