Property owners have a right to challenge their property assessments by filing an assessment appeal application with the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors. An Assessment Appeals Board, appointed by the Board of Supervisors to serve as the local board of equalization, will determine the value of the property after hearing evidence from the applicant and from a representative for the Assessor's Office.

 Assessment Appeal Applications

Regular Assessments  

(Current Tax Roll)

Filed between July 2 and November 30 each year.

Supplemental or

Escape Assessments

Filed no later than 60 days after the date appearing on the face of the Assessor's notice, or the postmark therefore, whichever is later.

 

Assessment Appeal Applications are available at the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors' Office or on-line below. Please remember to sign your Application prior to submission. A guide on how to appeal the assessed value of residential properties published by the State Board of Equalization can also be obtained at the Clerk's Office or at the State Board of Equalization web site.

If you disagree with the taxable value of your property, you may request an informal review of your assessment. You may contact the Assessor’s Office at 559-600-3534. All original data used to assess your property and any additional information provided by you will be reviewed by the Assessor's staff to determine if the assessed value should be changed. Any reductions made are generally done under the rules and authority of Proposition 8.
