Property tax relief for taxpayers impacted by fires


The Board of Equalization reminds property owners affected by this year’s wildfires that they may be eligible for property tax relief. (BOE News Release No. NR 20-08 (December 3, 2020))

Affected properties in Governor-proclaimed disaster areas may qualify for property tax relief if the loss estimate is at least $10,000 of the current market value of the property.

To qualify, the taxpayer must file a claim with the county assessor’s office within 12 months from the date of damage or the time specified in their county’s ordinance, whichever is later.
