Dear Mr. Huynh,

Thank you for your prompt reply. If the Unsecured data set has the requested property tax information on the vehicle fleet of rental cars it would indeed suit my needs. Before spending the money for that, however, I need to ascertain that the Unsecured data set has the requested information pertaining to property tax assessments or levies on rental car vehicle fleets. I was informed by the Auditor-Controller’s office that Assessor does not assess rental car vehicles. Can you confirm whether there are any assessments and/or appeals requests for reassessments contained in the Unsecured data?

Sincerely,
Robert Teel

Hi Robert,
I’d like to inform to you about your request that our datasets don’t contain specific the attributes you request. I have attached a unsecured dataset sample for “Enterprise Rent-a-car”. If you are interested in purchasing this file, please review all the columns in this file because we will provide you this format with exactly those columns. Otherwise, if you have any question about the tax, you can contact Tax Collector for individual record. Let me know if you have any further question. Thank you.
