Asked by Erin Delliquadri, Lakewood, CA • Thu Feb 26, 2009
We bought a home in Nov 2008, the previous owner bought the home in August 2008 and flipped it. We are now getting a supplemental tax bill that includes the previous owners portion, also we have been told by the Assessor that since the previous owner had 1 whole year to pay their supplemental and only owned the home for 3 months, that we are now responsible for the remainder of their year of supplemental that goes back to when the home was only worth 19K. Our home has yet to be assessed for our purchase so we have another bill coming, how can we be made responsible for someone elses tax debt? Assessor said this should have ben included in our escrow papers. In the meantime, we now have a delinquent bill that needs to be paid. Who do we go to, who dropped the ball? This sounds crazy to me!
