Santa Barbara County Treasurer-Tax Collector Public Administrator Public Guardian
Is there corruption from our Santa Barbara County Assessor and Tax Collectors office?
Somebody should ask our Lt. Governor Able Maldonado to pay his fair share of taxes. Some one should check with the Santa Barbara County Tax Assessor and ask him why Parcel numbers do not match address's? I hope that Lt Governor Able Maldonado's property Taxes are brought current! This property shows a net assessed value of over 10,000,000 dollars and has not been billed for property taxes since 12/06

I have add this reply based on the comments I had to this posting.
Anonymous said...I did research the form 700 and those are not the APN numbers which correspond to the E street address you were talking about originally.You are correct that those APN numbers are listed. However, that is way at the other end of the valley and have nothing to with E. Street. If you keep digging you will also see there was some lot line adjustments done at what you are saying is Dos Rios which resulted in new and combined APN #'s.
Rest assured I would not have commented had I not been sure that E Street (which was your original big complaint) was not associated with Mr. Maldonado.
Again I ask is there corruption from our Santa Barbara County Assessor and Tax Collectors office? Let me start this off with the fact I agree it should not be this hard to verify a property address to a parcel number to a property tax bill, but why is it?
In your first comment you ask me why do the tax statements say zero due if they are delinquent. You are correct they say zero due from the 12/06 tax bill. The problem is why has the Santa Barbara County assessor and tax collector stopped billing for property taxes on that parcel? Than you state "If you look further to find the owner of that property you will see the title is held by Driscoll Strawberry Growers. The last time I checked Mr. Maldonado was in NO way connected to this company." Now I ask you; DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHERE MY DATA AND QUESTIONS ARE COMING FROM? MY DATA COMES FROM MR. MALDONADO HIMSELF BY WAY OF HIS FILING TO THE CALIFORNIA FAIR POLITICAL PRACTICES COMMISSION LOCATED @ http://www.fppc.ca.gov/index.php?id=550 Mr. Maldonado claims on his Form 700 to be involved with the corporation Agro-J Framing of which he sits with the title 'Controller" an states he makes over 100k from that position. He than list Tri M. Rental group as a partner. Since this information is filed on his Schedule A-2 we automatically know that means he has a 10% interest or greater. Now if you review my earlier posting I did also question why the different identifying parcels numbers for the same address. Go back to to the posting you you are originally commenting on. The Tax collector bill has a parcel listing of 117-820-34-00 an address of 1430 S.E. street 93454
Yet the County assessors web site has the address 1430 S E street tied into parcel identified as 117-820-040 So why the confusion on the assessors part? Than the assessor shows a 2010 assessed value of over 10,000,000 yet no billing for property taxes. An that is what I am asking. Why is there no new billing ? Why the confusion on the assessor's part.
Now we have the same kind of misdirection involved in another portion of Mr. Maldonado's Form 700.

|What happen to 117-820-034? This A.P.N. is listed on Pg 12 of the form 700 An the Santa Barbara Tax collector has billing for this parcel, just look again at the top of this page and there is the billing!|

Why would Mr. Maldonado be confessed as to any parcel modification to property he owns, the assessed value reflects a current 2010 value? I am sorry your argument just does not hold water. Feel free to paste your findings here so we may all verify your statements.
