Welcome to CAPTA

No Savings = No Fee!

California Property Tax Associates (CAPTA) is the expert in reducing California Property Taxes. We work entirely on a contingency basis meaning that if there are no savings, there is no fee from us!
 

Commercial

We've represented thousands of commercial properties throughout California.
 

Residential

Home prices are on the rise, but does that mean your assessment is fair?
 

Outside the Box

Why we exist: to ensure your property is assessed at FAIR market value, not the Assessor's opinion.

Values are on the rise - are you protected?

Are you a property owner in the state of California? Then you might be happy to know that overall, property developers, homeowners and commercial property owners have done well these last several years. We are happy for you if you are one of them. But many who think they are in this group are unnecessarily overpaying their property taxes -- and the sad truth is they don't have to. Are you or your client one of them? It will cost you nothing to find out.
 

We've saved THOUSANDS of clients MILLIONS of dollars

For many years and through two recessions our property tax agents have saved our clients millions of dollars in property taxes. We work in all Counties throughout the State of California by representation before the Assessment Apppeals Boards in the assessment reduction process.
 

Our Mission is Simple:

Enforce our Clients' Rights under Proposition 13 and ensure they never pay more property tax than what they are required after applying every conceivable reduction strategy allowed by law.
 

Time is Critical

With very few exceptions, when the application deadlines pass there is no going back to appeal past years' property taxes in the property tax appeal process. You owe it to yourself and your portfolio to put CAPTA on your side. Remember, No Savings = No Fee!

Do It Yourself

In the many years we have been involved in the Property Tax Reduction business we have seen many things.… Our attendance at Assessment Appeals Hearings, either with Hearing Officers or the full Assessment Appeals Board has given us the opportunity to learn more and more. While waiting our turn to have a Client's case heard, we have watched as individuals, property managers, lawyers and even other agents present their cases. It is always interesting to watch as the property owners or their representatives fall victim to the arbitrary procedural rules and customs in each County.
