“Apparently the row-house I bought 3 years ago and have lived in ever since is now “class 3/vacant” and I owe over $20k in property taxes”

DCd wrote earlier in the week:

“Today I received a “corrected” tax bill from the District of Columbia. Apparently the row-house I bought 3 years ago and have lived in ever since is now “class 3/vacant” and I owe over $20k in property taxes for the second half of the year.

Why does this classification just randomly change? Do they notify owners in any other way other than a corrected tax bill? FWIW, the property next door HAS been vacant over 2 years now in process of a horrible renovation.

Anyway, I called DCRA and they are sending an inspector to my home. I pay monthly utilities and yes, there is wine in my fridge which I plan to drink soon.

Despite the random (and expensive) classification error, I’m happy to report they’re still giving me the HOMESTEAD deduction for my primary residence.
