County of Los Angeles Files Petition for Rehearing in Property Tax Administration Fee Case

December 10, 2012

Last week, the County of Los Angeles asked the California Supreme Court to revisit its decision in City of Alhambra v. County of Los Angeles where the Court held that the method by which the county calculated the Property Tax Administration Fee for the Triple Flip and Vehicle License Fee Swap was not consistent with state law.

 

The Court has until February to decide whether to grant the county’s request. It is rare for the Court to grant a request for rehearing. However, should the Court chose to reconsider the case, the existing decision will be vacated and any new decision would supersede the Court’s previous decision.

For more background on this case, please see the Nov. 20 CA Cities Advocate story “California Supreme Court Rules for Cities in How Payment to Counties is Calculated.”
