Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I disagree with my Business Property Assessment?

Please call the Assessor's office and discuss your assessment with one of our Auditor Appraisers, or you may file a Business Property Assessment Review Request with our office or a formal assessment appeal with the County Clerk-Recorder.

When you file an assessment review you will need to supply information to support your opinion of value. This could be financial records such as depreciation schedules or appraisals for equipment similar to yours, or blue book valuations of your boat or aircraft.
