An error was reported to the Klamath County Assessor’s office regarding the City of Klamath Falls Police Station General Obligation Bond. This affected the 2017 tax roll. As a result the city of Klamath Falls received reduced funds for the bond. Per Oregon statute 311.205(1)(a) errors to a previous years roll are collectable the following year. The average property tax account will see a onetime, 5 dollar increase to cover the shortfall on their 2018 tax statement. No interest will be added for the error.
After investigating the issue, the cause was determined to be a data entry error. Controls have been put in place to eliminate future errors. Any further questions can be directed to the Klamath County Assessor’s office at 541-883-5111
