Misfortune and Calamity Tax Relief
You may be eligible for tax relief if your property is damaged or destroyed by a calamity, such as fire or flooding. To qualify, you must file an Application for Reassessment: Property Damaged or Destroyed by Misfortune or Calamity (ADS-820) with the Assessor’s Office within 12 months from the date the property was damaged or destroyed. The loss must exceed $10,000 of current market value.
Proposition 19 Disaster Relief Transfer of Base Value
In addition, if your property was substantially damaged or destroyed by a Governor-declared disaster, Prop.19 provides for your property's tax base to be transferred to a comparable property within the same county or another county in California. Please visit our Prop. 19 page
