Direct Assessments in Los Angeles
When uncovering property tax savings opportunities within Los Angeles properties, we begin focus on the direct assessments tied to any given asset. Special assessments contain taxes placed on things like sanitization charges, sewer charges, vector control, and ocean preservation. Direct assessments in Los Angeles County are typically considered a superfluous tax that often go overlooked by other firms; however, Invoke is relentless in uncovering every detail of these specialty taxes to solidify state officials are legitimately subsidizing these line items. Behind the orchestration of specialty taxes are administrators hired by the state rather than the elected state officials themselves, leaving plenty of room for error within the assignment of direct assessment and their associated tax bills. Our consultants are granular in the examination of these special assessments, and relentless in our efforts to correct errors for our clients. Once adjustments have been made and refunds are distributed, the corrections are maintained moving forward, allowing our clients continued property tax savings year after year.

Our Los Angeles team has experience gathering data on tracked water consumption used to aid our claims of over payment on sanitization. While some consultants are ruthless in their filings, causing counties to be weary of their claims, Invoke has well established trust with county assessors and the additional privileges and tax savings for our clients to show for it.
