California Property Tax Updates


Property Tax Appeal Filing Season Opens in California

The season for filing Assessment Appeal Applications on 2019-2020 property tax assessments opens on July 2. In most of California’s 58 counties, taxpayers have until December 2 to file their appeals. In ten counties, however, appeals must be filed by September 16. Those counties include San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura, as well as five smaller and less populous counties. Applications must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service on or before these due dates to be timely. Assessment Appeal Applications are available on the websites for the county assessment appeals board or, for smaller counties, county board of supervisors’ websites. For most counties, the appeal applications can be filled-in on-line and, in some cases, the applications can even be submitted electronically. Note also that most counties require a filing fee be paid at the time the Assessment Appeal Application is submitted.
