Assessment Appeals Board

Administration Office
25 County Center Drive
Suite 200
Oroville, CA 95965

Assessment appeals’ hearings are held before a three-member Board, all of which are citizens appointed by the Board of Supervisors. The Board hears the evidence from both the applicant and the Assessor.

The Assessment Appeals Board:

  • DOES NOT fix tax rates, levy taxes, or change the tax rate.
  • CANNOT reduce your assessment:
    • because you cannot pay your taxes, or
    • because the assessed value of neighboring properties is lower than your present assessment
  • CANNOT grant exemptions or remove penalties for delinquent payments.
    • Your opinion of full market value and facts or justification for your opinion of value as of: (a) January 1 for personal property, or (b) the date real property is purchased, newly constructed, or changed ownership after March 1, 1975.
  • WILL DETERMINE whether transfer of ownership occurred requiring reappraisal for tax purposes if there is any disagreement regarding this issue.
