San Bernardino Property Tax Appeal

Posted by on May 8, 2012 in County, Follow Our Work, Home, San Bernardino County Property Taxes | Comments Off

After filing an application for changed assessment to lower the assessed value of a home in San Bernardino County, we were able to work out a reduction with the County Assessor’s office resulting in refunds to our client. After some back and forth with the County we were able to show why the comparables used were in fact superior and provided our own more realistic sales. As a result, we were able to show the fair market value was not the enrolled $1,100,000 but rather $900,000, giving our client a refund of over $2,000.

The back of the lot, which is unimproved, is considered excess land. The 2010 enrolled value was $1,795,000 and the 2011 enrolled value was higher at $1,808,000. It looks like this value would have carried forward to the 2012 tax year

Yesterday we attended a hearing before the board of appeals on a fast food restaurant (major chain) in Los Angeles County. By showing that the reduced rent paid by the tenant towards the end of the lease, and that this particular chain was inferior to other top brands, we were able to secure a reduction in the property tax assessment for the 2010 fiscal year from $1,556,900 to $850,000. That’s a single year’s property tax savings of over $7,700 and a reduction of almost 50%!
