Larimer County property owners have received phony notices vis U.S. Mail stating a lien has been placed on their property for non-payment of taxes.

The notice states federal tax authorities have placed a lien on their property for non-payment of taxes and will garnish wages and bank accounts, seize property or seize federal tax refunds to pay the debt, and to call a toll-free number --- 1 [800] 279-0231 --- to avoid enforcement.

Larimer County Treasurer Irene Josey said today the letter is a fraudulent scam, to disregard the notice and also contact local law enforcement. “The federal government does not collect local property taxes, nor does it have authority to engage in or enforce local property tax collection,” said Larimer County Treasurer Irene Josey.

The notice also states it is from the Tax Processing Unit in Larimer County, Public Judgement of Records, when in fact, no such entity exists.

Larimer County Treasurer Irene Josey reminds property owners to immediately contact the Larimer County Treasurer’s Office at [970] 498-7020 or by email at lctreasurer@larimer.org with any questions if they receive these notices.
