AUBURN, Calif. – Applications are currently being accepted for seats on the Placer County Assessment Appeals Board. The Assessment Appeals Board serves as the Board of Equalization for Placer County and is therefore responsible for equalizing the assessment of property on the county’s tax roll.
State Law requires applicants to have a minimum of five years of licensed or certified professional experience in California as an accountant, real estate broker, attorney or property appraiser.
The Assessment Appeals Board is comprised of five members who are nominated by a Placer County Supervisor and ultimately appointed by a majority vote of the Board of Supervisors. Board members currently receive compensation of $100 per meeting, however, the compensation structure for this board is currently under review and it is anticipated that the amount will increase in the near future.
Utilizing a rotating schedule amongst the five members, three members of the Assessment Appeals Board preside over hearings held every three weeks, or as determined by the Assessment Appeals Board. The Board acts in a quasi-judicial capacity to dispense with appeals filed by property owners and deliver timely decisions on appeals.
Interested parties are encouraged to visit the Assessment Appeals Board webpage or contact the Clerk of the Board to learn more about the requirements for serving on this Board. Those who are prepared to apply can submit a completed application (found here) to the Clerk of the Board, 175 Fulweiler Avenue, in Auburn, 95603.
