(Victor Valley)– The County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector issues property tax refunds as a result of reductions to assessed valuations determined by the Assessor’s Office.
Examples are exemptions, proposition 8 reductions and assessment corrections, after the taxes have been paid or when a supplemental event, such as a change of ownership, occurs that triggers a negative supplemental assessment refund. In all cases, either a refund claim form or a warrant is mailed to the address on file; however, many of these refunds remain unclaimed. With certain exceptions, taxpayers generally have four years to file a claim for the refund. The last day to file a claim for tax refunds issued prior to July 1, 2016 is this Tuesday, October 27.
