ASSESSOR-RECORDER ANNOUNCES OFFICE CLOSURES AND NO WALK-IN SERVICES 

“The Coronavirus situation is rapidly evolving and disrupting many aspects of our everyday lives.  The safety and health of our employees, the public and our communities is our number one priority”, said Assessor-Recorder Paul Dictos. 
 
In accordance with national and local social distancing best practices we are making temporary changes to the ways we interact with you the public.  We are encouraging our employees to work with taxpayers via phone and digital channels when possible.  Above all stay safe and healthy. 
 
As a precautionary measure to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the Assessor’s and Recorder’s Offices will not be able to provide services for walk-in customers starting March 18, 2020 until further notice.  In the meantime, we will continue to serve you as described below for both offices.
