(Victor Valley)– The Board of Equalization (BOE) released a report today which states that most properties in Modoc County are properly assessed and the overall quality of the assessment roll, representing approximately $859.6 million in value, meets state standards, announced George Runner, Second District Member of the BOE.
The Modoc County Assessment Practices Survey Report addresses the quality of the 2011-12 Modoc County assessment roll and presents four recommendations for improving the Modoc County Assessor’s programs. It also includes the assessor’s responses to the recommendations, which can be found in the report: www.boe.ca.gov/proptaxes/pdf/25apsr0813.pdf.
These reports provide an overview of how well assessors’ duties are performed in California’s 58 counties, and identify where improvements should be made. Every assessor is required to identify and assess all properties located within the county – unless specifically exempt – and maintain a database, or “roll,” of the properties and their assessed values.
Surveying the state’s 58 county assessors’ practices fulfills the BOE’s mission of promoting statewide consistency in property tax assessment. Every five years, the BOE reviews each county’s property tax assessment practices and publishes a report.
