The San Diego County assessor's office announced Wednesday that it has extended the deadline to request an appeal or review of 2013 property values to May 16.
Appeals and requests for review of assessment are down significantly compared to last year. Formal appeals of 2013 property value was 6,861 as of April, 30 2014, compared to 14,627 formal appeals for 2012 property value at the end of April 2013. Requests for assessment reviews last year was received from 798 property owners, while this year only 299 requests were received.
San Diego County has 981,829 taxable parcels of property — the second most of California’s 58 counties.
“Appeals and assessment reviews are received from less than one percent of parcels in the county,” Dronenburg said. “But by extending the request deadline we want to make sure any owner that thinks they need a review gets that opportunity.”
Property owners, who believe their property’s market value as of Jan. 1, 2014 has dropped below its current assessed value, can file an application online to request the assessor to review 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 their 2013-2014 tax bill. The application for an Assessment Review can be submitted online at www.sdarcc.com.
