When are my taxes due?

How is my Assessed Value calculated?

The assessed value (AV) on your tax statement is the value used to calculate your property taxes. For most property, the maximum assessed value was established in 1997 under Measure 50 by taking 90% of the 1995-96 market value and has continued to grow by 3% annually. If you have new construction, remodeling, or additions to your property, the assessed value may increase more than the typical 3%. These are examples of exceptions to Measure 50 that allow the property's assessed value to grow more than the typical 3%. New construction, additions, and remodeled properties do receive a Measure 50 benefit similar to existing property. The market value of the new construction is reduced by the ratio of the maximum assessed value to real market value of similar classes of property calculated county wide. Once a new assessed value is established, it then continues to grow by the annual 3% increase required by Measure 50.
