Sample Property Tax Report for a Santa Clara County, CA property


The California Constitution mandates that all property is subject to taxation unless otherwise exempted by state or federal law. Proposition 13 - Article 13A, Section 2, 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 $305,912
Improvement value + $452,750
Assessed value = $758,662
Exemptions And Taxable Value

Taxable value represents the assessed value less any tax exemptions that apply. Exemptions like Homeowners exemption and Disabled veterans exemption are available in the County of Santa Clara that may lower the property's tax bill.

Assessed value $758,662
Homeowners exemption - $7,000
Taxable value = $751,662
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the property's taxable value by all tax rates applicable to it.
Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays including exemptions.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from any exemptions would pay.
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 assessments.
