Existing law requires boards of assessors (i.e., assessors) to determine what portion of the property held by scientific, educational, literary, historical, charitable, agricultural, and cemetery organizations is exempt and assess any property they determine to be taxable. They must do so by inspecting the statements or applications the organizations must file to claim their property tax exemptions.
Section 10 of the bill requires assessors, upon denying a tax exemption application, to mail a written notice of the decision to the applicant’s last known address and include with it (1) the gross assessed value of the property; (2) the amount of any exemption granted; (3) the net taxable property value; and (4) a statement that the assessor’s decision is appealable. The notice must be mailed after the October 1 assessment date but no more than 10 calendar days after the grand list is signed.
