San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister says his office will be sending new tax bills to 3500 residents of South Park and Golden Hill. This time, without any fees for the Greater Golden Hill Maintenance Assessment District tacked on.
The City has remained silent on the issue since a judge ruled the assessment district invalid on February 9. And without word from the City, residents felt they were left with the bill for the non-existent maintenance assessment district.
McAllister assures them that is not the case.
"The tax payers should all be receiving corrected bills by April 2," said McAllister.
"And, if the assessment was paid, then residents will be receiving refunds in next two to four weeks. The county has a reliance on the local jurisdiction, which in this case is the City of San Diego. We are sort of caught in the middle here, and as soon as we get correct data we send out refunds.
As for additional refunds for prior years, the city will have to determine how much is owed and when to issue refunds.
