L.A. County appraiser gave unauthorized tax breaks to rich

A former Los Angeles County property appraiser who secretly granted large, unauthorized tax breaks to wealthy homeowners told officials that county Assessor John Noguez personally asked him to “look at the properties,” according to documents reviewed Friday.

Some homeowners who got a reduction then made contributions to the assessor’s campaign fund. The assessor of course says he knows nothing about such shenanigans. A criminal investigation is underway.
