Are the PROPERTY TAXES on your HOUSE being reviewed for a DECLINE in VALUE?

LOOK IT UP ONLINE! I love how easy the Assessor has made it for us, as you can now check to see if your property value has been reassessed, online at the Riverside County Assessors office:


Assessed values in Riverside County have dropped 11% from 2008. Starting last week more than 300,000 homeowners in Riverside County should have begun receiving notices of a reduction in tax assessments, bringing assessed values back to near 2006 levels.

If you disagree with the new assessment, you can still file an assessment appeal. The link for that form is here:


If you are planning to file an assessment appeal, you will need info on current home comparables to take with you to assessment appeal hearing. Contact your friendly neighborhood REALTOR if you need help getting comp information for an appeal.
