Application for Tax Clearance Certificate & Disclosure Document 

Application for Tax Clearance Certificate and Disclosure Document 

Collection of estimated taxes: Lien date January 1st each year

Recorder’s Deadline for recording maps:  December 31st each year

Payment of estimated taxes and getting a tax clearance certificate is required to record  a parcel map, subdivision map or lot line adjustment.  To accurately estimate the upcoming taxes we need disclosure of the property.  The divisions of land and building is more complex, often multiple layered, which creates a need for accurate information.  Today’s dealings are more sophisticated, occur at a much faster pace, and occur out of sequence to what we have know to be normal.  Sometimes there are activities that affect the property’s value, and these activities are not always made a part of the public records.  We simply must have disclosure from the owner as our guesses are not sufficient given today’s practices.
Application processing fee.
There is a $65.00 processing fee, non-refundable, to cover the preparatory work.  The processing fee is paid at the time the application is submitted.  It could take up to 10 days for us to provide the tax calculations. PLEASE REMIT A COPY OF THE FINAL PROPOSED MAP WITH YOUR APPLICATION. 
Method of payment.
Clearing the tax liens prior to recording the maps is governed by Gov. Code sections 66492 – 66494.1.  Under the authority of Revenue & Taxation Code section 2505, we have limited the ‘method of payment’ on these transactions to be cash, cashier’s check or  title company's check for payment of taxes prior to certificate issuance.
