I wanted to remind everyone that you have one more month to appeal your 2012 property taxes in Sacramento County. The deadline to dispute your assessed value is November 30, 2012. This deadline is for typical “decline in value” situations where the market has decreased in value, but the assessed value is out of sync with reality. Keep in mind the assessed value is supposed to be based on January 1, 2012 – NOT today. If you have questions about how the process works, you can scan through over 60 property tax articles I’ve written or feel free to email or call. However, read here about some of the nuts and bolts of property taxes to help you get started. Being that it’s down to the last month, I highly recommend owners to fill out the Application for Changed Assessment (a formal appeal) instead of the Prop 8 Form (a free form that carries zero weight after November 30). Like I tell everyone, it’s great if you can do your own research in the appeals process, but if you need help, let’s connect.

I just added a nifty feature on this website that will remind everyone of property tax appeal deadlines in surrounding counties. Let’s face it, life is busy and it is sometimes difficult to stay on top of these details because of all that we are juggling. So if you are located in the Greater Sacramento Region, Central Valley or Bay Area, feel free to sign up. We don’t need to know each other personally or be connected in any way. Maybe you’re a home owner or someone who happened to stumble on this website. Or maybe you are an agent or broker who will look good when you remind your clients of these important deadlines and what they entail.
All you need to do is enter your phone number and mobile carrier in a sidebar feature to the left and push “Subscribe” (I included an image above in this post of what you need to look for in the left sidebar). Then I’ll make sure to send you a text message prior to July 2, November 30, and anything else that becomes relevant. You will NOT be called, your phone number will NOT be given to anyone, and you will NOT be spammed with texts or solicited for business either. This is simply a helpful reminder for you. Also, if any of your friends or family would benefit from a reminder, you are welcome to send them here too.
If you have any questions regarding the property tax appeal process or property tax appeal appraisals, contact (or text) me at 916-595-3735 or email me at ryan [at] lundquistcompany [dot] com.
