ProtestReply: JB
Just putting that on there isn't going to GUARANTEE  anything...but if you have a dispute with a company about a payment , I would think that by doing this, you are simply showing that you did not agree with the charges and that it MAY HELP with any refund , reduced fee, or whatever the resolution you are seeking.   Better to have too much documentation than not enough.

Paid in Protest?Reply: MayorShinn
I could write that on all my payments. How is that going to get me a refund? The refund will come if the tax is rescinded retroactively. We received a bill and paid it because it was the law.

Fire FeeReply: JB
TORI:   If you wrote "paid in protest" on your check...I would think that you have grounds for demanding a refund.  Clearly you weren't in agreement with the tax to begin with (as are many , if not all of us !)   If I were you ...I would absolutely try to get a refund.  
So glad I haven't had the $ to pay it already...now I won't bother trying to find it !! LOL

SRA Fee RefundsReply: Nathan
I also paid mine for 2 years. I do believe you should recieve a refund if the law is shot down. However as of now it is just suspended and is still law until it goes up the ranks. You did have to protest it and had to pay it in advance to be eligible for a refund however.

Just got word of this. FYI, the CA Board of Equalization is going to postpone the collection of the SRA fire fee for now.
