Contesting your Value
Should you disagree with your assessed value, you have the right to file a formal protest.
Property owners wishing to appeal a regular assessment to the Assessment Appeals Board may do so between July 2nd and September 15th. If the bill is for an escape assessment or other assessments made by the Assessor outside the regular assessment period, an appeal may be filed with the Clerk and shall be heard only if filed within 60 days after the personal notice or notice by United States mail at your address as contained in the official records of the Assessor. The taxes must be paid prior to the delinquency date to avoid penalties. If the appeal results in a reduction of taxes, you will receive a refund if the tax has been paid. If your taxes are increased, you will receive an additional bill. Appeal forms and additional information pertaining to assessments appeals may be obtained from the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, 10th Floor, County Government Center, East Wing, 70 West Hedding Street, San Jose, CA 95110.
