We apologize for any confusion on the 2011-2012 Notification of Assessed
Value. The inflationary factor for 2011-2012 is POSITIVE and it is
0.753%. This will not affect your Net Assessed Value as the correct
inflation rate has been applied to your 2011-2012 value.
June 30th of each year, the Assessor-Recorder’s Office closes their
books and a new fiscal year begins. By August 1st of each year the
Annual Notice of Assessed Value is mailed to property owners to explain the upcoming
assessed value of their property.
The value shown on the Annual Notice of Assessed Value
Letter plus any taxable property placed on the roll as a result of a business
property assessment and minus any exemption for which a property owner may qualify
will be the basis of the property tax bill. In addition, other direct
assessments may be added to the bill by other public agencies.
If you believe you are eligible for a homeowner’s exemption,
contact the Exemptions Unit at (415) 554-5596 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please refer to your property’s parcel number (APN or Block & Lot #) in the subject line for all
correspondence with our office.
property owner has an opportunity to appeal their value should they believe that
they are due a reduction. One way to apply for a temporary homeowner’s property
tax reduction (Proposition 8 - Informal Review) is by filing a simple request form
with the Assessor’s Office. If a property owner believes that the market value as of January 1st of that
year is less than the amount shown in their Annual Notice of Assessed
Value Letter (sent in July), a property owner may
request an informal assessment review via fax, mail, or in person by the deadline. For more
specific information, see our Temporary
Homeowner’s Property Tax Reduction web page and related training video. The filing period is generally January 1st
to March 31st.
Additionally, a property owner may file a formal appeal
with the Assessment Appeals Board. For instructions on filing a formal appeal
and more specific deadline information, please visit the Assessment Appeals Board web page.
