I just got a 49-page letter from the Los Angeles County Treasurer/Tax Collector. A client owns real estate in Los Angeles County. Because my client’s property tax bill is more than $50,000 per year we must pay the bill by ACH.
Forty freaking nine pages to tell me how to pay a bill electronically.
Cost imposed on taxpayer to comply with the County’s insane rules > County’s savings through advanced processes.
Yes I counted the pages. At least the eco-green bureaucrats did double-sided printing.
