WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 24, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Many Arlington County homeowners have received correspondence, signed by Jud Allen of Express Homebuyers, falsely claiming that these owners owe real estate taxes and that the County may take their homes away from them due to delinquent taxes, Arlington County Treasurer Carla de la Pava said.
“I want to assure County homeowners that, unless you have heard directly from the Arlington County Treasurer, you do not owe delinquent real estate taxes and there is no risk of the County taking or selling your home,” de la Pava said.
The Treasurer’s office has received a number of complaints from homeowners who have received the letters.
“Anyone who has questions about this letter, or who would like to report having received it, please call the Treasurer’s Office, at (703) 228-3090,” de la Pava said.
Arlington Va., is a world-class residential, business and tourist location that was originally part of the “10 miles square” parcel of land surveyed in 1791 to be the Nation’s Capital. Slightly smaller than 26 square miles, it is the geographically smallest self-governing county in the United States, and one of only a handful with the prized Aaa/AAA/AAA bond rating. Arlington maintains a rich variety of stable neighborhoods and quality schools, and has received numerous awards for Smart Growth and transit-oriented development. Home to some of the most influential organizations in the world — including the Pentagon — Arlington stands out as one of America’s preeminent places to live, visit and do business.
