Proposition 8 Decline in Value Request - Commercial Owner

Commercial Owners Seeking Temporary Property Tax Reduction for 2021-2022

The Santa Clara County Assessor’s Office is preparing to respond to the impact Covid-19 has had on commercial property (land and buildings) values. The Assessor’s Office has the authority to temporarily reduce property tax assessments in accordance with Proposition 8 if the market value—as of January 1—falls below the 2020 assessed value. Proposition 8 only allows for temporary reductions on land and buildings. However, tenants, such as hair and nail salons or restaurants, may receive reductions through a property owner in accordance with their lease.

Owners of commercial property (land and buildings) are requested to provide data by February 26. Below are examples of the requested industry-specific data. This information will be used by the Assessor’s Office to evaluate potential opportunities to reduce 2021-2022 property taxes for commercial properties most impacted by Covid-19.

To apply for a reduction, applicants are encouraged to have the above data compiled electronically prior to completing the on-line application below.
