Got a letter in the mail saying for $179 this company would reassess my property and lower my taxes. The letter, of course is very official looking. I discover that the city will do this for free. Fortunately, I paid with a check and had it stopped. BUT the bank informed me that it would be stopped for 6 months only, and after that if the check came through, they would pay it! It was on the local news station, which is how I found out.
