Flood of property value review requests expected in SF 

The City is anticipating another flood of requests from homeowners requesting property value reviews.

In the 2007-08 tax year, the Office of the Assessor-Recorder said it received around 245 informal review requests. In 2009-10, there were approximately 4,400 requests.

“In response to this huge demand, we are accepting applications,” Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting said.

The office will accept informal review requests for single family dwellings, residential condominiums, townhouses, live-work units and residential cooperative units, the department said.

A request for an informal review can be made in writing by completing an application or submitting a request online at www.sfgov.org/assessor.

“This new informal review process is free and will make it as easy as possible for taxpayers to qualify for a reduction if it is warranted,” said Ting.

He added, “In 2009, approximately 11,700 homeowners received temporary reductions and each will automatically receive a review of their property for the year 2010-11.”

Residential property owners are also encouraged to file a formal appeal with the Assessment Appeals Board between July 2 and Sept. 15.
