This feature allows taxpayers to view their annual Value notice. These notices have historically been mailed via the U.S. Postal Service to taxpayers who have either had new construction, a reduction in value due to current market conditions or an increase in value due to changing market conditions. Also receiving annual notices are secured business property assessments, Williamson Act and Timber Preserve properties. The significant increase in the number of properties that have had their values reduced due to current market conditions as well as continued pressure on the county budget has contributed to the difficult decision to change the notification medium. It is expected that it will take a period of time for the public to get used to the new system; however, there are some distinct advantages. Unlike mailed paper notices that can be lost or misplaced, the electronic version will be available all year long at a central place. This delivery medium is more eco-friendly. Taxpayers who do not have access to the internet can contact the Assessor's Office and request a paper copy of their notice at no charge. Annual value notices can be accessed by going to the Plumas County website at; clicking on Departments, selecting Assessor and then selecting Value Notices in the upper left had corner of the page. You will need your Assessment Number, Parcel Number or Physical Address. The Plumas County Assessor's website has a number of other useful features including parcel data searches, a complete inventory of Assessor's Parcel Maps in printable format and many informative resources on assessment related topics. If you have questions about our website or would like to request a paper copy of your annual value notice, please feel free to contact us at (530) 283-6380.
