2016-17 Tax Roll Completed
We are pleased to announce the completion of the annual Property Assessment Roll for 2016-17. The assessment roll has now been turned over to the Auditor-Controller's office where tax rates will be applied to the assessed roll values in order to calculate the tax amounts due. The Treasurer-Tax Collector will send out property tax bills within the next few months.
This year's countywide assessment roll increase of 5.88% is the result of continued overall improvement in the local real estate market. As a result, some owners may see significant increases in their assessed value due to increases in market value. For more information, click on the following link: "About Value Increases." Property owners may review their 2016-17 assessed value information by going to this link: Assessor Value Notice Inquiry or by accessing the same link from the Assessor “Services” drop down menu.
Should owners have questions regarding their assessed value(s) they are encouraged to contact the Assessor’s office for an explanation or to request an informal review. If property owners are unable to resolve their concerns in discussions with the Assessor’s office, they may file a formal Assessment Appeal by contacting the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors. The period for filing appeals of 2016-17 assessed values is July 2 to November 30, 2016.
As the elected Assessor of Stanislaus County it is my sworn responsibility to uphold the State's Property Tax Laws. Our website is an ongoing part of my commitment to keeping you informed of your rights and responsibilities as property owners in Stanislaus County.
