What Can Cause Your Property Taxes To Change?
From the L.A. County Assessors office:
In 1978, California voters passed Proposition 13, which substantially reduced property tax rates. As a result, the maximum levy cannot exceed 1% of a property’s assessed value (plus bonded indebtedness and direct assessment taxes). Increases in assessed value are limited to 2% annually. Only four events can cause a reappraisal:
- A change in ownership;
- Completed new construction;
- New construction partially completed on the lien date (January 1); or
- A decline-in-value (see Market Value Decline – Prop. 8).
Tax rates can change regularly so you will want to check with the county assessors office:
