To support our community, we want to share this very important information.  If a property was damaged or destroyed during the recent fires, it is possible that property tax can be lowered.  Sonoma County has announced that they will do this before the 1st installment of the 2017-2018 taxes are delinquent.

See http://sonomacounty.ca.gov/Public-Safety/Press-Releases/Fire-Damage-Property-Tax-Relief/


If you do not hear from the assessor you can institute a request for reassessment if the damage exceeds $10,000. This page has phone numbers and addresses of the Assessors for each California countyhttp://www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/assessors.htm

Also, it’s important to continue making mortgage payments as this situation gets sorted out. 

We are here to help with real estate information, so please contact us if you need support during this difficult time.
