Assessment Appeals

On March 19, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-33-20 known as the Stay-At-Home order directing all individuals living in California to stay home or at their place of residence. In order to comply with this order, appeals scheduled for hearing in April may be postponed until further notice. Applicants will be notified of this postponement. Postponements by the Board do not prevent applicants from requesting a postponement in the future. The Assessment Appeals Board will meet telephonically to consider postponements, stipulations and withdrawals.

Assessment Appeal Applications may be filed by mailing an original application and fee if applicable to Clerk of the Assessment Appeals Board; 44 N. San Joaquin Street, Suite 627; Stockton, CA 95202. Applicants are discouraged from visiting the office in person. Please check the Filing Dates below before submitting an application.


The property taxes you pay are based on your property’s assessed value, as determined by the County Assessor.  If you feel that your property value is less than the Assessor’s value, you have the right to appeal that value to your local Assessment Appeals Board by filing an Assessment Appeal Application. We have provided information below to guide you through the Assessment Appeal process.
