Cyndi Turner is a stickler for accuracy. She's an accountant, which helps explain why the Tigard woman was so disheartened after receiving a stern letter from the City of Portland claiming that she failed to pay some taxes.

“I pay my taxes in full,” said Turner. “I pay them on time.”

The letter explained that the City of Portland was collecting on behalf of Metro, the governing body that covers some services in much of the tri-county area. High-income households in Washington, Multnomah and Clackamas counties were expected to pay a new tax to fund homeless services.
