Richmond residents were a bit miffed when they received their personal property tax bills with very little time to pay and in some cases incorrect. An extension for filing was granted but the incompetence doesn’t end there. The following is a tale from an H&H resident.
We recently called the city to dispute charges on a 2011 car tax bill that was never received after buying our new car in November of 2011. We were charged penalties and interest and when I called the city I was told someone would get back to me within ten business days. On the tenth day (of course) I received a message that all appeals had to be in writing (even though we were never billed) and they would send me a form. I just had to share to pictures of the forms I received. Note the dates of 2003-2008, with 2011 scratched in, as well as the part about looking on the other side of the form for tax code information.
