About 720,000 homes and businesses across the county will be receiving property tax bills in the next few days. For the first time in years, taxpayers will not be writing their checks to Treasurer-Tax Collector Robert L. Citron, who resigned in the wake of Orange County's bankruptcy.

The state has been stealing the property tax paid by property owners for years. The intent of property tax is to pay for property-related matters. Cities provide us with both police and fire protection. The city should get all of the property taxes paid by property owners. The only reason property is used as a basis for taxation is that it is the easiest tax to collect. If you do not pay the tax, the government will confiscate and sell your property to somebody else.

Property owners must mail the second installment of their property tax bills by today or hand deliver the payment to downtown Los Angeles offices by Monday. The second installment of the annual tax is actually due every Feb. 1 but doesn't become delinquent until after April 10. Because April 10 falls on a Saturday this year, property owners have until Monday to pay.

Alhambra voters Tuesday approved a property tax hike to raise $75 million for a new police station. It was the first time that voters had passed a bond measure since 1955, when money was raised to build the city's current police station. A similar proposal failed in 1988. "This is a prime example of a grass-roots effort getting voters to pass a tax initiative in difficult economic times," said Mark Paulson, co-chairman of Alhambra Citizens Against Crime, which supported the measure.

Landowners must pay the second installments of their property tax bills by Monday or incur a 10% penalty. Installments must be paid by 5 p.m. Monday to avoid being delinquent, County Assessor Rick Auerbach said. Payments are required even if property owners have not yet received a bill, he said.

The idea of "current market value" as expressed by Mr. Ackerman is difficult to define. If homeowners asked three real estate brokers or appraisers to give a "current market value" for their home, they could easily get three different opinions. An attempt to reassess every parcel of property in the state every year at "current market value" would be a logistic nightmare. Assessors' offices throughout the state would be overwhelmed with work. It would take hundreds of new employees to accurately reassess every parcel every year.

Homeowners in the Tustin Ranch area will see a drop in their property tax bills this year after about $100 million in outstanding bonds are refinanced. "Now is an opportune time for us to take advantage of lower interest rates and certain changes in the law regarding assessment district bonds," said city Finance Director Ron Nault. The plan was approved by the City Council on Monday, and the deal is expected to be finalized by next month.
