If you disagree with the value on the Escape Assessment, or that there should have been a reassessment at all, please contact the Assessor's Office for more information and to request an informal review of the assessed value.
If you still disagree with the value after the informal review, you have the right to file a formal Assessment Appeal. An Assessment Appeal application must be filed with the Assessment Appeals Board no later than 60 days from the date the tax bill is issued. The Assessment Appeals Board is located at 700 H Street, Room 2450, Sacramento, CA 95814 or call 916-874-8174. Additional information may be viewed on their website at https://sccob.saccounty.gov/Pages/AssessmentAppeals.aspx.
The Assessment Appeals Board does not have jurisdiction in the approval or denial of an exemption. Please contact the Assessor's Office to speak with an exemption representative if you have questions. If a taxpayer believes they were wrongly denied an exemption, recourse includes: filing a claim for refund with the Board of Supervisors and/or filing an action in court.
