Landowners receive fire benefit charge notices
January 15, 2013
Landowners in Fire District 10 — Klahanie, May Valley, Mirrormont and Preston in the Issaquah area — recently received fire benefit charge notices.
The notice includes a letter of explanation and per-parcel benefit charge information. The notice is not a bill, and the recipient is not required to act, unless he or she believes some information is erroneous.
The notice offers a chance for the landowner to review the information used to calculate the fire benefit charge before it is applied to the 2013 property tax bill.
If a landowner believes the fire benefit charge amount is in error, the amount can be appealed. Find appeal forms at Eastside Fire & Rescue headquarters, 175 Newport Way N.W., and at www.eastsidefire-rescue.org. The deadline to submit completed appeal forms is 5 p.m. Feb. 1.
