Property Tax Relief for Those Affected by Storms

By filing a claim for reassessment with the Assessor’s Office within 12 months of the date the property was damaged, owners of properties that have sustained a minimum of $10,000 in damage may be eligible for a refund of taxes already paid and lower annual tax bills until the property is repaired or rebuilt. Once the repairs are completed, the property assessment will be restored to its previous value (in addition to annual adjustments, if applicable) so long as the property is rebuilt in a similar manner.
Tax relief is available for all types of properties including homes, commercial and industrial buildings, agricultural properties, manufactured homes, and business and personal property. Damage to vehicles, home furnishings, and personal effects are not eligible for this type of relief because they are not locally
An Application for Reassessment of Property Damaged or Destroyed by Misfortune or Calamity will be mailed upon request by calling our office at (559) 636-5100. An application can also be downloaded from the Assessor’s website at
