“It’s Your Money”

Posted July 31st, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

A clerk from the treasurer's office or even the treasurer himself will call Jim and say, "the law says it's YOUR money."

Dear Rob,

I’ve decided to let Jim’s property go to the Pierce County tax sale.

So, on December 1, 2007, I’ll be working an overage play on that thing.

But, you don’t need to worry because I already mentioned it to Jim back when I was negotiating with him on the telephone and he said whatever I did after I bought it was my call.

Do you see how that works?

As per Alex Haley

Aren't you the guys and gals with the law degrees here, and shouldn't you know better than that?

Dear Rob,

I’m guessing there’s still confusion in your office regarding the tax sale overage statute, RCW 84.64.080.

And unless I miss my guess, you’ll try to hang your hats on that “the law says it’s your (the seller’s) money” language contained therein.

Dear Rob,

Performance based bonuses?

I wonder if that’s such a good thing in light of the position your AAGs are in.

Ms. Direction

Posted July 27th, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

HB 1564 was intended to make it difficult for me to work MY overage plays so the county could continue to work THEIR overage plays.

Dear Rob,

In a word, HB 1564 is best described as “misdirection.”

Anyone not realizing its true intent no doubt believes it has something to do with protecting the overage funds of the Tom and Suzies of the state.

It does nothing of the sort and was never intended to do anything even remotely related.
