Free Filing of Annual Assessment Appeals Now through Sept. 15
The Annual Assessment Appeals Filing Period is from July 2,– September 15, 2010
(Santa Ana, CA) The Orange County Clerk of the Board reminds residents that the Annual Filing Period for filing an assessment appeal began July 2, 2010 and will run through September 15, 2010. If you believe that the value of your property is less than the assessed value established by the Assessor for January 1, 2010 lien date, you can challenge your assessment by filing an assessment appeal. It is not necessary to use a tax agent or pay a fee to file an assessment appeal.
The Clerk of the Board has created an online e-file program that provides step-by-step assistance in completing your appeal form. You can locate the assessment appeals e-file program at http://assessmentappeals.ocgov.com/aa/. Workshops to better understand the appeal process and to assist you in preparing for your hearing are held at various libraries throughout the County. Workshop schedules can be found at http://www.ocgov.com/cob. Again, there is NO charge for filing an assessment appeal.
