K&C Obtains $13,000 Refund in Property Taxes Improperly Charged to HOA

A homeowners association received a tax bill for more the $27,000 and paid approximately $13,000, which was due for the first half of the year.  The association believed it was being improperly assessed but had been unsuccessful at convincing the County Auditor’s office to remove the charges allegedly due for City sewer assessments.

Kaman and Cusimano investigated the tax history of the parcel to determine the charges were improper and contacted both the City and County demanding the charges be removed unless the City conclusively proved its entitlement to the assessment.  Based on our efforts, the County Auditor removed the charges and is issuing a refund of the approximately $13,000 already paid by the Association.
