QUESTIONS? Read before you dial
Every year along with your tax bill there is a Comparison Statement (TS-1A) which compares your Assessments, Deductions, Additional Fees, and the Tax Rates from this year to last.  Please review this BEFORE CALLING.  Identify what has changed.  This will direct you to the office that can help you with that change.  This Comparison Statement may not answer all of your questions, but it will most likely direct you to the correct office to call.
