“Real property tax issue from DCRA”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Petworth with my family in a single family home my wife and I purchased in 2019. This year my property tax was assessed at the Class 3 rate, though my home is very clearly not vacant and this wasn’t an issue last year. Our bill is quite high as a result. OTR says DCRA vacant buildings division needs to fix this in the computer.

People need to contact DCRA first, OTR will not fix it on their end. I had to send in multiple utility bills and they’re supposed to be sending an inspector today. I hope. This whole situation makes no sense. I’ve asked my lender to freeze the tax payments for now. Hot mess”
