Tax Bill Information
Current Year Billing in progress, bill information will be available in September.

This notice informs you of THE TAXABLE VALUE of your property. It also serves to inform you of your opportunity to request reconsideration of our findings. If you believe that your property was worth less than the indicated amount, you should first discuss the matter with the Assessor's staff by calling (661)-868-3485.

Pursuant to the State Constitution, property shall be taxed in proportion to its value. This law requires the property be appraised at its 1975-76 market value unless it has been sold, newly constructed, or had a change in ownership after March 1, 1975. In the latter cases, the property will have a new base year market value as of date of the sale, new construction or change in ownership. The base year value is subject to an annual rate of inflation not to exceed 2 percent increase per year. The taxable value of real property on the local roll shall be the lesser of: (a) factored base year value, (b) current market value, or (c) the value of the property if it was damaged or destroyed by calamity pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code 170

Within 12 months following the month of notification of the assessment, if the Assessor agrees that a reduction of value is warranted and legal and proper, he may adjust the value. Or, if the assessment roll has been completed, he may aid you in applying to the local assessment appeals board for relief. A written stipulation may be made and filed with the application to the Kern County Assessment Appeals Board in accordance with the Revenue and Taxation Code 1607. This section provides that the taxpayer need not attend the scheduled equalization hearing and testify to the property's value, if you and the Assessor agree to the value and sign a written stipulation to this effect. The Board can either accept the stipulation or reject it and set a new hearing date. Applications for Change in Assessment for value not agreed upon with the Assessor must be filed in writing by the taxpayer or his representative with the Clerk of the Assessment Appeals Board between July 2 and November 30 of the current fiscal year. The Clerk of the Assessment Appeals Board is located at the County Administrative Center, 5th floor, 1115 Truxtun Ave, Bakersfield, CA 93301, and the phone number is (661)-868-3585. If you have not received this notice at least 15 days prior to November 30, then you have 60 days from receipt of this notice or the mailing of your tax bill that reflects an increase in the base year value (whichever is earlier) to file an application for change in assessment. This application must include an affidavit declaring under penalty of perjury that the notice was not timely received. Applications for reduced assessment of the base year value must be filed for the year in which the base year value was initially enrolled or in any of the following three assessment years. This assessment notice also serves to notify owners of land enforceably restricted by contractual agreements under the WILLIAMSON ACT that the Assessor will enroll the lesser of the agricultural preserve value, the indexed base year taxable value, or the current market value. The lesser value will be enrolled unless either party to the contract expressly prohibits such a valuation pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code 423.

Pursuant to state law, a copy of the local assessment roll is available for public inspection during regular office hours (8-5) Monday through Friday in the Assessor's Office at 1115 Truxtun Ave, 2nd floor. EXCLUSIONS - Certain sales/transfers of property between parents and children and certain sales/transfers from grandparents to grandchildren may qualify for exclusion from reassessment thereby maintaining your lower property tax liability. Please contact our office at (661)-868-3300 for further information.
