Poor training, employee errors and inadequate staffing in the Los Angeles County treasurer-tax collector's office contributed substantially to months-long delays in answering and correcting taxpayer problems, according to a county audit. A six-month review by the auditor-controller concludes that while the treasurer-tax collector has made progress in reducing a huge backlog of correspondence, more than 12,800 inquiries from taxpayers questioning their property tax bills remain unanswered.

Ray Fowler scanned his morning newspaper to see whether any of his friends or neighbors had made the list of Los Angeles County taxpayers who were late paying their property taxes. The last thing he expected to find was his own name. "It is just not a happy experience to go whipping down the delinquency column and find yourself listed there," he said--especially since he had paid his taxes.

Financial underwriters who want to do business with the County of Los Angeles must agree not to give political donations to school bond campaigns under new rules adopted this month by government finance officials. Because Los Angeles County is by far the largest municipal bond issuer in California, the move is likely to have statewide implications. Mark J. Saladino, the Los Angeles County treasurer-tax collector, said Tuesday that his office set the policy to prevent campaign donations from influencing the hiring of securities brokers by school districts and to increase competition among dealers, who often charge millions of dollars in fees.

The Senate confirmed Rep. Hilda L. Solis (D-El Monte) as Labor secretary Tuesday, more than two months after President Obama nominated her for the post. Solis, 51, had faced a series of problems, including revelations of $6,400 in outstanding tax liens owed on her husband's auto repair business. But her path to confirmation was cleared when Republicans ended plans to invoke a rule that would have forced a filibuster-proof 60 votes for confirmation.

Property taxes are not the most pleasant subject, even a tax collector recognizes, and so Sandra M. Davis, Los Angeles County treasurer and tax collector, has developed some public services to alleviate stress. "This year, we are offering extended office and telephone assistance hours, along with our 24-hour Proptax telephone service," she announced. Starting last Monday, daily downtown operations in the Hall of Administration at 225 N. Hill St., extend from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
