Tax Relief Offered for Impacts by Storm

Post Date:02/02/2017 12:52 PM

Owners of property damaged by recent storms and flooding may be eligible for property tax relief. In many cases, the damaged property can be reappraised in its current condition, with some taxes refunded to the property owner. Once rebuilt, the property will be re-assessed to its pre-damaged value.

            To qualify for property tax relief, residents must file a claim with the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office. The loss estimate must be at least $10,000 of current market value to qualify.

            Owners of eligible property may also apply for a delay of their next property tax installment without penalties or interest. The disaster must be the result of a Governor-proclaimed state of emergency. When a timely claim for a delay is filed, the next property tax installment payment is delayed without penalty or interest until the County Assessor has reassessed the property and a corrected tax bill has been sent to the property owner.

            Property owners who pay State Board of Equalization (BOE) -administered taxes and fees listed below can go to the Relief Request webpage to request relief from penalties and/or interest, and an extension of time to file their tax or fee returns. Those interested may also call the BOE Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-800-400-7115, Monday through Friday form 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for assistance requesting relief.
