The disclaimer below is required by AB 992.

“THIS ASSESSMENT REDUCTION FILING SERVICE IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY. IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THE ASSESSED VALUE OF YOUR PROPERTY, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AN INFORMAL ASSESSMENT REVIEW, AT NO COST, BY CONTACTING THE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE DIRECTLY. IF YOU AND THE ASSESSOR CANNOT AGREE TO THE VALUE OF THE PROPERTY OR IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO CONTACT THE ASSESSOR YOU CAN OBTAIN AND FILE AN APPLICATION FOR CHANGED ASSESSMENT WITH THE COUNTY BOARD OF EQUALIZATION OR ASSESSMENT APPEALS BOARD ON YOUR OWN BEHALF. AN APPEALS BOARD HAS THE AUTHORITY TO RAISE PROPERTY VALUES (BUT IN NO CASE HIGHER THAN THE PROPOSITION 13 PROTECTED VALUE) AS WELL AS TO LOWER PROPERTY VALUES.”

CAPTA is pleased to include this disclaimer in our website as a remedy to the growing number of fraudulent companies seeking to take advantage of the continuing problems associated with falling real property values.

While CAPTA agrees with the above premise that the Assessor should reduce a property’s value if it is over-assessed, the magnitude of the work required to accomplish this task is not possible. As the work-load increases, the budget and staffing at the Assessor’s Office decreases. They simply cannot do more work with less people.That’s where CAPTA comes in!
