scam alertOC Clerk Annie Rabbitt is advising residents to beware of a tax warrant scam. Residents in other counties have reported receiving what looks like an official notice from New York State which claims they have unpaid taxes and may face property seizures as a result. The notices are not from New York State or the IRS. If you do have a tax warrant, please be sure you are dealing with the State, the IRS or a reputable law firm.
