EDUCATION & COMMUNITY OUTREACH The Public Affairs Team was established to generate awareness of the programs and services provided by the Office. To keep the public informed, the Office of the Assessor actively participates in appearances, presentations, educational forums, community events, and television interviews. The Office hosts community outreach forums and business seminars to educate and inform the public. These community forums are intended to provide the public with helpful information and one-on-one guidance to better understand the Los Angeles County property tax system and the services offered by the County. 25
