Property Tax Formal Appeal Information
Property owners can appeal the value of the property appearing on the regular assessment roll by filing an application for changed assessment during the regular assessment filing period with the clerk of the board of supervisors (sitting as a local board of equalization) or assessment appeals board.
Filing an Application for Changed Assessment guarantees the property owner their right to a formal hearing before a Hearings Officer or 3-member Assessment Appeals Board in which to present their case for lower assessments.
The regular assessment filing period is July 2 through either September 15 or November 30, depending on whether the assessor has elected to mail assessment notices to all taxpayers on the secured roll.

Assessments made outside the regular assessment period (supplemental assessments and escape assessments) must be appealed within 60 days after the date the notice of change in assessment is mailed. An exception exists in Los Angeles County and in any other county where the board of supervisors has adopted an alternative resolution. In these counties such assessments may be appealed within 60 days of the date of mailing printed on the tax bill or the postmark date, whichever is later.
For disaster relief assessment appeals, a claim must be filed within six months of the reassessment notice.
Failure to file an Application for Changed Assessment by the specified filing deadlines will result in forfeiture of a property owner’s right to have their case heard and seek property tax savings. Late applications will be rejected!
Many counties have a filing fee associated with filing an Application for Changed Assessment. Please check with your local Clerk of the Board’s office for the county in which your property is located to inquire as to whether filing fees apply.
