MOSQUITO FIRE PROPERTY TAX RELIEF INFORMATION

 

The Assessor's office would like to extend our sincere sympathy to property owners who have suffered a loss as a result of the Mosquito fire.  We have created a comprehensive guide that details various aspects of property tax law that provides for property tax relief for victims of a wildfire or natural disaster. Please take a moment to review the Mosquito Fire Property Tax Calamity Guide.  A §170 Application for Reassessment of Damaged or Destroyed Property and an address change form are included in the guide. We hope that this information helps you understand the process. If you have any further questions, please call our office at (530) 621-5719, or send an email to assessor@edcgov.us.

CALDOR FIRE PROPERTY TAX RELIEF AND RECOVERY


NEXT STEPS FOR PROPERTY OWNERS WHO HAVE RECEIVED A CALDOR FIRE VALUE REDUCTION:

If you have received a reduction on the assessed value of your property due to the Caldor Fire, your assessed value will be reviewed annually, starting with the 2023 lien date (1/1/2023).  Value will be restored each year, based on a review of market values and the progress of reconstruction (if applicable).  Please note: the limit to which the value can be restored to in most cases is the Prop 13 trended base year value. See additional information under the reconstruction section. 

 

RECONSTRUCTION OR TRANSFERRING A BASE YEAR VALUE TO A REPLACEMENT PROPERTY:

There are provisions in the law that allow for new construction reassessment exclusions when rebuilding after a disaster or for transferring a Prop 13 base year value to a replacement property for victims of a natural disaster or wildfire.  For additional information on the options available please click HERE.

The Assessor, the Auditor and the Tax Collector each play a role in property tax administration. The Assessor is responsible for maintaining the inventory of all assessable property in the county and preparing the various assessment rolls which are the basis of the property tax bills.
