Don’t Miss the Property Tax Assessment Appeals Deadline

There are only a few days left to file a property tax assessment appeal for fiscal year 2014-2015. Residents can appeal if they feel the value of their property as determined by the County assessor exceeds the market value.

The filing period for an appeals application ends Monday, Dec. 1. Applications must be received by the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors office no later than 5 p.m. or postmarked by 11:59 p.m. that day.

Those filing will need to include their parcel or tax bill number, property address and their opinion of the property’s market value on the application.

The application, information booklets, a step-by-step guide, a video explaining the assessment appeals process and other resources are available on the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors website. Residents may also pick up applications and booklets in person and speak with staff at the Clerk of the Board’s office in the County Administration Center at 1600 Pacific Highway in Room 402 in San Diego. You can call the office at (619) 531-5777.
