Arlington Brief: County Warns of False Tax Letters

Some Arlington County homeowners have received correspondence, from 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, call the Treasurer’s Office, at 703-228-3090.
