Sample Property Tax Report for a Placer County, CA property


The California Constitution mandates that all property is subject to taxation unless otherwise exempted by state or federal law. Proposition 13, enacted in 1978, forms the basis for the current property tax laws.

Assessed Market Value

Assessed value is calculated based on market value using a base year value. A property's original base value is its 1975-1976 market value and can be adjusted each year by no more than 2% to account for inflation. However, if there has been a change in ownership or completed new construction, the new assessed value will be the market value of the property as of the date that if changed ownership or was newly constructed.

Land value $62,500
Structure value + $197,500
Assessed value = $260,000
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax exemptions that apply. The State of California Constitution provides a variety of full and partial exemptions that may lower the property's tax bill.

Assessed value $260,000
Homeowner exemption - $7,000
Taxable value = $253,000
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying property's taxable value by the corresponding tax rates applicable to it.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs, or to non ad-valorem taxes levied as special taxes.
