Deadline for Tax Reassessment - September 15th

According to the Alameda Assessor's office, all reassessments of property values should have gone out by the end of July. If you have received your reassessment and agree with it, then you do nothing and this new amount will be reflected on your tax bill sent out in October. IF YOU DISAGREE OR DID NOT RECIEVE A REASSESSTMENT, then you have until September 15th to appeal or to request a reassessment. This is your one chance to make it happen before the 15th. If you are not sure you got one in the mail, go to this link and type in your address. It will show you the current assessment amount:


Here is a brief message copied from their web page:

After the review project is completed in June, all taxpayers will be notified of their 2009 assessed value during the latter part of July. Once notified, if you agree with the value no action on your part will be necessary and the annual tax bill sent out in October will reflect that assessment. If you disagree please call this office at (510) 272-3787 or come in person. The Assessor's office is located at 1221 Oak St., Rm. 145, and Oakland, CA 94612-4288. Knowledgeable staff is available to assist you with your concerns from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If after contacting this office your value concerns are not resolved, you may file an Application for Changed Assessment with the Clerk, Assessments Appeals Board, P.O. Box 1499, Oakland, CA 94612-1499. For information on how to obtain and complete an application call (510) 272-6352 or visit the Clerk's website at http://www.acgov.org/clerk/assessment.htm. The appeal application must be filed between July 2 and September 15, 2009.
