Assessment review deadline approaching
Property values in San Diego County have been dropping in market value over the past couple of years, prompting some property owners to submit request for review of their assessed value with the County Assessor’s Office.
San Diego County Assessor Ernie Dronenburg reminds property owners that the deadline to request a review of their assessed value is April 30.
An application for an assessment review may be submitted online at www.sdarcc.com. It is a self-explanatory form and does not take a lot of knowledge about the law, only an understanding of the current market value of the home, according to a statement from Dronenburg’s office.
Applications also are available by calling the assessor’s office at 858-505-6262. A form will be sent by mail.
Property owners who believe their property’s market value as of Jan. 1, 2012 has dropped below its current assessed value may file an application online to request a review of their property’s assessment before this year’s bill is issued. As an indication of their current assessed value, an owner can reference the assessed value on the 2011-12 tax bill.
Dronenburg reminds the estimated 205,000 taxpayers who received a reduction last year that they need not apply again this year as their assessed value of last year will automatically be reviewed.
All taxpayers who apply will be notified of the assessor’s decision when the annual notices of values are mailed in July. Owners who disagree with the decision may file a formal appeal with the county Assessment Appeals Board. This appeal should be sent to the Clerk of the Assessment Appeals Board between July 2 and Nov. 30.
