Customer Question
taxes that have been paid...
I was just served a Notice of Citation to appear in court for taxes that have been paid for by father in law. He owns the house and I manage it. As noted the taxes are paid for and the fees tot he attorney have been paid as well. even on the Notice it shows that everything is paid, the County website shows everything paid. I am confused and don't know what they want.

There is also a weird note about them talking to maid, which I don't have, looking for my father in law who doesn't live here. It also says that Exhibit A has the amount owed but there is no Exhibit A. I don't want to go to court and my father in law lives in CA. I just want it to go away.

HiI'm Anne. I've been preparing taxes for 28 years and I'll be happy to help you. Contact your local VA to learn more about the "Aid and Attendance" program. There are also several non-profits that work with veterans to process their claims. VA benefits are not automatically given; they must be applied for, and recipients must meet certain requirements. Veterans with spouses could receive over $23,000 annually toward personal home care assistance, assisted living or nursing home care. Spouses of deceased veterans may be eligible for over $12,000 annually. Also, you may want to apply through Medicare. It depends on the type of help that you need, but If her doctor has prescribed clinical help that would be administered by a registered nurse, physical therapist, or occupational therapist, Medicare will pay. Also, while under the care of an in-home clinician, a home health aide or other caregiver can be assigned under Medicare coverage for bathing and certain other types of personal care. Medicare will not pay if you need help with activities of daily living such as non-prescribed personal care, meal preparation, medication reminders and housekeeping. The only insurance that does cover these services is long-term care insurance, which is privately purchased.

I would reply back in writing with proof that shows everything has been paid. I would also request in writing that you be allowed to appear by telephone. I would also apply back that there is no exhibit A. What do you mean maid? Is there any phone number you can call?

There is a failure to serve paper where they claim to have come to the house and spoken to a maid that told them that my father in law goes to work early and comes home late. That's just fabricated. I don't have a maid and he doesn't not has ever lived here. He lives in CA. There is a phone number for a law office. Even on their own paper work it says that everything is paid.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Here is part of the packet they left. Also it was left on our door handle and not given to someone. It says that it had to left with someone once the age of 16.
Tax Professional: Mark Anderson, Tax Attorney replied 1 year ago
Is it in a court? Reply in writing to the court that everything was paid (with proof) and mail a copy to the law firm. Also request to appear via telephone so you don't have to waste your time going there.

What does the notice say?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can't tell. Most of the wording seems to not say anything.
Tax Professional: Mark Anderson, Tax Attorney replied 1 year ago
You might want to call the tax agency and ask. Maybe there is something you owe. Otherwise I would reply in writing and show it is paid.

You would think that they would have sent a bills before they issue a citation.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok on the County website it says that everything is paid In full even their paper work says that. Could the law office just want us to pay more fees?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
They did send a bill for fees and I paid them already. I sent a check for the amount they were requesting for fees and a note explaining that my father in law doesn't live here.
Tax Professional: Mark Anderson, Tax Attorney replied 1 year ago
Maybe. I could mail a copy of all the information showing you paid it including the website to court and mail a copy to the law firm.

It's like they are making a false claim that they attempted contact. But I don't understand why they would do that when I paid their fees and the taxes. What can't do if I don't show up for court? It says to show up before 10 am of he Monday next after the expiration of 20 days from the date of service of this citation. Which since they didn't properly serve me they can't prove.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
And it's not even me...
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Do I call The court? Or just the law office? When I call what do I say?
Tax Professional: Mark Anderson, Tax Attorney replied 1 year ago
I would call the court and say you have proof it has been paid. You can raise improper service too in your response. Ask or file a motion for a continuance if you can't make it. Collection firms are annoying.

Does the inconsistency in their information matter legally? Does it matter that they are serving the wrong person?
Tax Professional: Mark Anderson, Tax Attorney replied 1 year ago
Yes.

Raise it as an issue. I would think you would just want to get rid of it and show it was paid.
