 Important Message from the General Partner

Please be advised that the 2nd half of 2015 real estate taxes that were due to Maricopa County was May 1st. The payment was actually made on May 18th. A total of approximately $2,000 was accrued in late fees/interest penalties and Host will be responsible for paying that amount. You will not be responsible so please ignore any notices sent from Maricopa County. We apologize for this late payment. We experienced difficulty in connecting with the contact at Marriott who typically provides us with the consolidated bill to pay and by the time we made contact the deadline had already passed. Again, Host will be paying any interest/penalties associated with this late payment.
