July 2nd is the first day taxpayers can file an application for temporary property tax relief.
If you miss the 2015 filing period all property tax refund opportunities vanish.
Understand if the filing period closes without filing an appeal, there is no recourse for recovering over paid property taxes.
View the California State Board of Equalization’s video explaining the annual filing time frame and how you need to file each year your assessment is excessive.
Los Angeles County alone received over 100,000 assessment appeal applications per tax year for the last several annual filing periods.
CA R&T code 1604c allows each of the 58 California Counties up to two years to conduct a hearing either before a formal three person assessment appeal board or a less formal hearing before an appointed hearing officer (typically for residential properties assessed under a million dollars)
Should a county fail to hear a taxpayers assessment appeal within the two year time frame and assuming neither the taxpayer or the county agreed in writing to a waiver of the two year statute, a default ruling in favor of the taxpayer’s opinion of value, as stated on the appeal application filed for that tax year, becomes the adjusted assessment.
