STOP the Cuyahoga Cty LANDBANK

You pay taxes - stop the Cuyahoga County Land Bank from transferring this property to the CHN-Eden Emerald Alliance, that has engaged in tax fraud for years!!


Ms. Davis and Ms. McShane,
Attached is a copy of the spreadsheet(s) that will be submitted to David Burwell from the State Department of Taxation in response to your submission of the DTE-23B (Complaint Against the Continued Exemption of Real Property from Taxation).  Per your request, we have field inspected and summarized our findings for review with the State.   The final determination for the continuance or repeal of exemption will be rendered by the State Tax Commissioner.  

(Summary: The County was unable to find justification for the multiple properties Eden added after their initial 1992 DTE request for the first group home they operated in Cleveland Heights - the attached properties are being submitted to the State of Ohio Dept of Taxation for review)


Ms. McShane,

            Per our telephone discussion earlier today, I am forwarding your referral to White Collar Squad at the Cleveland FBI.  Thanks for your information.
