Madera County Assessment Appeals Board

The Clerk of the Board is responsible for the administration of the Madera County Assessment Appeals Board. 

Property owners in Madera County that may own property currently assessed at greater than market values can appeal the assessed value to the Assessment Appeals Board (AAB).

Property values can decline for several reasons.  For instance the demolition of real structures on the property, damage from landslides, earthquakes, etc. may cause the actual value of property to drop. 

The assessment appeals process begins with the property owner filing an appeal with the Clerk of the Board.  The appeal is reviewed by the Assessor and Assessment Appeals Board.

You may request that your appeal be heard by a Hearing Officer if the assessed value of the property under consideration, as shown on the current assessment roll, does not exceed Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00), or the property under consideration is a single-family dwelling, condominium or cooperative, or a multiple-family dwelling of four units or less, regardless of value.

The AAB or Hearing Officer hears all applications.  It may act only on the basis of evidence which is presented to the Board. The only authority of the AAB or Hearing Officer is to determine the taxable value of your property. The decision on value will be determined by weighing the evidence presented.

Once the disposition of the appeal is determined, the property owner is notified.

If you feel that your property is worth less than the value assessed by the County Assessor, you can begin your application for assessment appeal here.  It is very important to understand the requirements of filing an appeal before you begin. 

Please read the Local Rules of the Assessment Appeals Board before filing your appeal.
