California Property Tax Updates

UPDATED June 2021

Assessment Appeal Filing Season Opens in California

The season for filing assessment appeal applications on 2021 property tax assessments opens on July 2.  In most of California’s 58 counties, taxpayers have until November 30 to file their appeals.  In ten counties, however, appeals must be filed by September 15.  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 by these due dates in order to be valid.  Assessment appeal applications are available on the websites for the county assessment appeals board or, for smaller counties, the county board of supervisors’ websites.  The appeal applications can be filled-in on-line and, in some cases, the applications can even be submitted electronically.  Note also that many counties now require that a filing fee be provided when an assessment appeal application is submitted.
