FYI: Frequently Asked Questions
- I receive just one tax bill on several adjacent subdivided lots that I own all covered by one APN. How can I get separate APNs and tax bills?
If the City's or County's Building, Community Development or Planning Department confirms, in writing, that each of the lots can be developed, financed, leased or sold separately, then there may be a separate tax bill for each lot.
- The new owners of the property next to mine say that the fence between our two properties is in the wrong location and must be moved
Can you help me?
The Assessor/Clerk-Recorder has no authority to and cannot: A) Give anyone legal advice; B) Determine the actual ground location of any property boundaries or corner marks of a parcel; or C) Prepare deeds or read/write land descriptions for property owners.
- When is real property reappraised?
Under State law (Proposition 13), real property is reappraised only when a change-in-ownership occurs, or upon completion of new construction.
