2018 Assessment Roll Preparation
The Assessor’s Office continues to prepare the 2018 regular assessment roll, which will be delivered to the Auditor-Controller in late June 2018. Roll values for the 2018 Roll will reflect all factors affecting property value as of 12:01 AM on January 1, 2018.
All Property Statements were due April 1, 2018, and are subject to penalty after May 7, 2018
All property statements must be received in the Assessors’ office by 5:00 PM on May 7, 2018, or must be postmarked on or before May 7th. Business/Agricultural property statements can also be filed online until 5:00 PM on May 7, 2018. On-line filing requires a BIN (Business Identification Number). BINs were sent to known accounts in January.
A ten percent (10%) late penalty assessment will apply to all late-filed and/or unfiled statements, in accordance with Revenue and Taxation Code Section 463
For more information or assistance with filing please access Personal Property under the Assessment menu on our main webpage, or contact our Business Property division.
Exemption Claims for the 2018 Lien Date were due by February 15, 2018
Institutional exemption claims for the Welfare Exemption Claim, for qualifying non-profit agencies (including some church properties), the Church Exemption Claim and the Historic Aircraft Exemption Claim, must be filed annually. Claims filed after February 15, 2018 may still qualify for partial exemption.
As required by law, and as changes in ownership are processed in our office, the Assessor also mails Homeowner Exemption claim forms to all buyers of residential property. To qualify for a 2018 Homeowner Exemption, the home must have been owner occupied as of 12:01 AM January 1, 2018.
For more information, please see Exemptions under Assessments on our main webpage, or contact our Exemptions Division.
