Operation: Who’s Escheating Who? – Update

Posted October 9th, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

To date, no one to my knowledge has endeavored to put these numbers together, but that ends now with my recent PRA request.

Dear Rob,

It’s been ten days since my original request to counties for their overage records.

I’ve asked each county, under the Public Records Act, for information that allows me to account for the overages escheating to them, giving us a clearer view of what’s at stake here.

Little Else

And why not?

I maintain unclaimed overages escheating to county coffers (and me acquiring them instead of the counties) is precisely what’s fueled this investigation from day one.

My purpose is to demonstrate that your case is predicated upon protecting the gravy-train that is unclaimed tax sale overages escheating to the counties of this state, and more importantly, little else.

To date, no one to my knowledge has endeavored to put these numbers together, but that ends now with my recent PRA request.


Updated Spreadsheet

Here’s a copy of the spreadsheet, updated late last week.

I’d say we’re about a quarter of the way into it, but expect that to change shortly as many of counties have advised me that they will be sending their records out this week.

I have no doubt they will and expect 100% compliance.

In the arena,

Joe Kaiser

    Not sure I understand the spreadsheet but I think that the King County info (and others) is underreported. Perhaps that is implicit in the spreadsheet. To be blunt, I do NOT believe their numbers.

    olyguy,

    No numbers posted just yet. Still waiting for results to come in. We’ll see what happens.

    I expect to receive believable numbers and will document all results with affidavits if need be.

    Joe
