If you are a San Joaquin County homeowner in California, by now you should have received a letter from the County Assessor’s Office, stating the newly assessed value of your property. For the most of us it means that the value of our homes has declined and a new value has been determined and a new base for you property tax assessment has been set.
For those of you out there, who do not agree with the newly set value of your property: you can appeal to the Assessor’s Office and get your home revaluated. All you need to do is visit the Assessor’s Office website and fill out the appeal from. This form has to be mailed and received by the Assessor’s Office, no later then October 31st and has to be accompanied by a list of comparable properties or an appraisal report.
Please feel free to contact me in case you think this applies to your situation, but don’t know where to start. (NO obligations).
