8A Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2010 Feather River Bulletin i, A short primer on Calif a property taxes Diana Jorgenson Portola Editor djorgen- son@plumasnews.corn California offers a surprisingly readable overview on property taxes (! proptax) Here's the short version. State Board of Equal- ization (BOE) administers sales tax and excise taxes and oversees property taxes. BOE has five elected members: four mem- bers from legislatively defined districts and the state controller who serves in an ex of- ficio capacity County boards of su- pervisors act as BOE; large counties with many assessment ap- peals appoint a board to act; Plurnas County (one of nine counties) uses its Board of Super- visors, instead. BOE has two divisions: county-assessed proper- ties and state-assessed properties. The state continues to assess and collect taxes on privately owned railroad cars. BOE continues to assess regulated railway, tele- graph, telephone com- panies, utilities both electrical and gas, pipelines, flumes, ditch- es and aqueducts; rev- enue allocated to coun- ties in which the proper- ty is located History 1879: BOE regulated county assessment prac- tices, equalized county assessment ratios, and assessed railroad prop- erties Pre-1912: BOE as- sessed property and col- lected 70 percent of the state's income. Now counties levy property taxes; BOE promotes uniformity in property assessments throughout the state. County assessor an- nually assesses, discov- ers, inventories and lists all assessable and tax- able property on the Io- cal assessment rol I; es- tablishes secured tax roll: regular assess- ments of any given year. County tax collector prepares tax bills, gen- erally mailed by Nov. 1. First installment due Dec. 10; second install- rnent becomes delin- quent April 10. One percent tax rate, plus amount to make bond payments Property tax relief Property owners 55 or older and perma- nently disabled may carryover taxable value to a new dwelling with - out being reassessed. Parents may transfer a principal residence to children without re- assessment. New construction re- quired by ADA or seis- mic retrofit is not tax- able, filed claim re- quired. Property substantially damaged or destroyed by a disaster; reduced value remains until the property is repaired or reconstructed. Unsecured roll is pri- marily tenant-owned property and fixtures, boats, aircraft, etc.; delinquent Aug. 31. Supplemental assess- ment roll: properties that changed owner-- ship or had construc- tion. Penalties Ten percent penalty if delinquent Monthly redemption penalty 1.5 percent on unpaid taxes Property redeemed by paying taxes, penal- ties and costs within five years of the date the property became tax-defaulted. Unredeemed proper- ty may be sold a public auction. Appeal Property owner may appeal assessment in- formally byspeaking to assessor or file formal appeal with the BOE (in this case, Plumas Coun- ty Board of Supervi- sors).
