How to lower your property taxes through assessment appeal

In an effort to provide equitable resources to the public, the Orange County Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, continues to host workshops throughout the County for people interested in learning more about property tax assessment appeals.

“Property owners have a right to challenge their property assessments,” said Supervisor Andrew Do. “The purpose of these workshops is to inform residents of some of the many services the County offers.”

Property Taxes
Property taxes are primarily based on the property’s assessed value as determined by the County Assessor.

Appeal Application
An assessment appeal is an owner’s opportunity to challenge the assessed value placed upon their property by the County Assessor.

Assessment Appeals Board
The role of the Assessment Appeals Board is to make impartial decisions on all property assessment disputes appealed, separate and independent from the Assessor’s Office.

Filing Deadline
The filing deadline has been extended to December 2, 2019.

The Assessment Appeal Workshop will take place Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at Freedom Hall at Mile Square Park, 16801 Euclid Street, Fountain Valley, CA 92708. FREE Admission.

For questions concerning the Workshop, please call the OC Assessment Appeals Division staff at (714) 834-2331, ext. 1 or visit their website at http://www.ocgov.com/gov/cob/apa.
