Property tax scam in area

Posted: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 10:43 am

If you get paperwork in the mail that purports to be from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) but refers to past due property taxes or a property tax lien, beware, says Kaufman County Tax Assessor-Collector Tonya Ratcliff.

“Us and (the county’s delinquent tax firm) are the only ones (residents) should get anything from,” Ratcliff said, adding that the IRS has nothing to do with property taxes.
