The annual assessment appeal filing period for the 2015-2016 fiscal year is from July 2 through November 30, 2015.
On July 8, 2014 the Nevada County Assessor delivered the 2014/15 Assessment Roll to the Auditor after reviewing property values and analyzing real estate sales that occurred in the months surrounding the January 1, 2014 lien date.
Value Notices - August 2015
The Assessor’s office will be posting value notices on the Assessor's website in July to property owners with changed assessments (other than those adjusted by inflation factors only).
After July 1, 2015, all property owners can review their 2015 Assessed Value in the following ways:
- View your Assessed Value online at Find My Assessed Value. (Your value can be searched by either Assessor Parcel Number (APN) or by the property street address.)
- Call the Assessor’s office @ 530-265-1232 to request your Assessed Value over the telephone.
- Request your Assessed Value by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you believe your assessed value is higher than the market value of your property as of January 1, 2015 you may contact our office for an informal review of the assessed value. The deadline for requesting an informal review for your 2015 assessed value will be November 2nd, 2015. A request form can be downloaded here
. There is no charge for this service.
Appealing your 2015-2016 Assessed Value:
Once the informal review is completed and you still believe your 2015-2016 assessed value is more than the market value as of January 1, 2015, as determined by the Assessor, you may also file an Assessment Appeal Application with the Nevada County Assessment Appeals Board. The form and further information regarding your appeal rights can be obtained from the Nevada County Clerk of the Board
. In addition, information regarding appealing a value based on a change in ownership or new construction can also be obtained from the Clerk of the Board. Your appeal rights are included on your value notice and property tax bill. The assessment appeal period for the 2015-2016 annual roll will be from July 2 through November 30, 2015 in Nevada County.
Appealing your Supplemental Assessment:
The appeal filing period for a Supplemental Assessment, based on completion of new construction or a re-appraisable ownership change, is governed by separate statutes from the annual roll filing period. The supplemental assessment appeal filing period is open upon enrollment of the supplemental value and closes 60 days from the date of enrollment. A Notice of Supplemental Assessment is sent to the property owner to indicate the start of the filing period. Should you miss the supplemental assessment filing period, you may still appeal the base year value of the property prospectively during the annual roll filing period for the subsequent three lien dates.

It is very important to understand that filing an assessment appeal does not relieve an owner of the responsibility for paying any outstanding tax bill. If you do not pay the bill by the due date, you may suffer penalties and interest charges that could otherwise be avoided. If you pay a bill and subsequently at the appeals hearing the Assessment Appeals Board lowers the value, you will be refunded or credited any excess taxes you may have paid.
The State Board of Equalization has developed a video designed to provide information to taxpayers regarding the assessment appeal process. The video is a helpful overview. The link and the publication referenced in the video are found below.
