Frequently Asked Questions
- What is a Supplemental Assessment?
State law requires the Assessor's Office to reappraise property upon change in ownership or completion of new construction. The Assessor's Office must issue a supplemental assessment which reflects the difference between the prior assessed value and the new assessment. This difference in value is prorated based on the number of months remaining in the fiscal year, ending June 30. (Generally, Supplemental Assessments are not accounted for in escrow dealings, but the new property owner should be made aware of the supplemental process.)
- How do I talk to someone about a letter I received from the Assessor regarding a supplemental assessment?
You will need to speak with the Assessor's Office to discuss the supplemental assessment that you received in the mail.
