Bank of America apologizes for mistakenly accusing 5,000 Oregonians of being late on property taxes

Bank of America said today it mistakenly sent nearly 5,000 Oregonians letters claiming they owe property taxes and might be risking foreclosure when they, in fact, don’t.

Washington County Department of Assessment and Taxation director Rich Hobernicht estimates his office has received 1,000 calls since Monday from homeowners who received letters from BAC Tax Services Corp, an arm of the bank’s BAC Home Loan Servicing division.

In Multnomah County, the bank said it sent 1,600 letters in error, according to county spokesman Shawn Cunningham.
