Long Beach to Receive $4.6M Settlement Payment from County Following Property Tax Suit

In 2005, the City of Alhambra—along with 46 other cities, including Long Beach—filed a lawsuit against the County of Los Angeles claiming that they were overcharged in property tax administration fees (PTAF). After a ruling by the California Supreme Court in favor of the cities back in November, Long Beach has reached its settlement with the County and will receive $4,610,296.
