The Assessor is reducing the assessed value of my property and I have already paid this year’s property taxes. When will I receive my property tax refund?
Normally, we process refunds twice a month, thus, usually refund checks are mailed within a month from the date the Assessor sends the Auditor-Controller’s Office notice of the value reduction. You may wish to first call the Assessor to find out if the value reduction has been sent over and when.

Nevertheless, if you have been waiting longer than a month, you may call our Office at (925) 646-1403 or email us with your name, mailing address, the subject parcel number, and the amount of the reduction the Assessor is processing and we will promptly research.
