A notice from the Merced County’s Tax Collector’s Office:

A concerned citizen reached out to the Merced County Tax Collector’s Office regarding a letter she received in the mail labeled “Notice of Intent to Levy Social Security Benefits.”

The Merced County’s Tax Collector’s Office Wants the public to be aware, this is a scam and is not associated with the Tax Collector’s Office.

And in case it saves you a phone call—property tax bills are sent out annually and they ARE legitimate. See copy below.
