When to File an Appeal Chart

Property Tax Assessment Law: Prop 13

CA Proposition 13 allows the county to increase your property tax assessment approximately 2% each year, based on the purchase price of your home. The county usually assesses your home at the Prop 13 ceiling.

Market Value is Above the Prop 13 Ceiling

Even if the market value of your home is above the ceiling, your property can only be assessed up to the Prop 13 value.

Market Value is Below the Prop 13 Ceiling

If the market value of your home is below the Prop 13 ceiling, you have the right to appeal the county’s opinion of value to match your home’s current market value, based on CA Proposition 8.
