To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:
All annual rental car company vehicle property tax assessments and supporting documents, including without limitation personal property tax listing forms, valuations, payments, appeals, requests for reassessments, results of the appeals and/or reassessments, and refunds.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Dear Mr. Teal:
This acknowledges that the Office of the King County Assessor has received your January 29, 2016 request for public records relating to rental car company vehicle property tax assessments and supporting documents.
Under Washington law, motor vehicles are not subject to property tax. See RCW 84.36.595(2). The King County Assessor therefore does not have any records responsive to your request.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
