Letter to Arlington homeowners from Express Homebuyers (photo courtesy Arlington County Treaurer's Office)The Arlington County Treasurer’s Office is warning residents of “false” claims in a letter sent to homeowners by a local home buying firm.

Springfield-based Express Homebuyers sent a letter to Arlington homeowners claiming they owed real estate taxes to the county. The letter then offers to buy the recipient’s home to help pay the tax debt.

The Treasurer’s Office released the following statement about the letter Monday afternoon:

“We have recently become aware that many Arlington County homeowners have received correspondence from Jud Allen of Express Homebuyers, falsely claiming that these owners owe real estate taxes and that the County may take their homes away from them due to delinquent taxes.

Please be assured that, unless you have heard directly from the Arlington County Treasurer, you do not owe delinquent real estate taxes and there is no risk of the County taking or selling your home.

If you have any questions about this letter, or would like to report having received this letter, please call us at (703) 228-3090.”
