Disaster Relief Property Tax Information

The taxable value of properties that have been substantially damaged or destroyed by a disaster may be reassessedto reflect the damage if the county where the property is located has adopted a disaster relief ordinance.

Claimsfor this relief must be filed with the county assessor within the time period specified in the ordinance or within oneyear from the date the property was damaged or destroyed by the disaster, whichever is later.

The reduced valueremains until the property is fully repaired, restored, or reconstructed. Then the factored base year value will berestored as long as it is substantially equivalent to the property prior to the damage or destruction.

For propertylocated in a county that has not adopted a disaster relief ordinance, a taxpayer may request from the countyassessor a Proposition 8 reduction in value.

If the disaster occurs in an area proclaimed by the Governor to be in a state of emergency and the taxpayer choosesnot to repair, restore, or reconstruct the damaged property:

“¢ The taxable value of property substantially damaged or destroyed may be transferred to comparablereplacement property that is located within the same county and acquired or newly constructed within fiveyears after the disaster. Claims for this exclusion are filed with the county assessor.
“¢ The taxable value of a principal residence substantially damaged or destroyed may be transferred to a qualifiedreplacement residence located within another county, provided that the replacement residence is located ina county that has adopted an ordinance that allows such taxable value transfers. This is effective for disastersoccurring on or after October 20, 1991. Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Modoc, Orange, San Francisco, Santa Clara,Solano, Sutter, and Ventura Counties have adopted ordinances accepting transfers of base year value underthis program. Claims for this exclusion must be timely filed with the county assessor.
