Homeowners have one more chance to make property tax claim

"An inspector general%u2019s audit released in March found thousands of ineligible property owners receiving the benefit, in part due to weak internal controls over the application process. The IG estimated the city lost between $1.1 million and $3.4 million in tax revenue in fiscal 2004 alone.
... Ward 2 D.C. Council Member Jack Evans, chairman of the finance and revenue committee, said most of the 4,000 probably deserve the benefit and “just didn’t send the letters back.""
