Property tax notice warning issued

December 18, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
If you own a home, there is a warning out about a tempting offer.

Be wary of companies offering to help lower your property taxes for a fee.

Authorities say that service, called a "decline in value" review is provided for free by all state assessors' offices.

Many of the solicitations create a false sense of urgency, by warning property owners they have to file for the review by December 31st.
