On today’s show we’ll be talking about the good (Home Equity is up) and the bad (Property Taxes are up) …and discussing the Sonoma County appeals process if you feel your property’s assessed value is off.

In California, Proposition 13 baseline year is a major factor in DETERMINING your Property Taxes. Had your property re-assessed, and lowered in the down-market (Prop 8)? Remember, it can go UP quicker than if it is Prop 13 only! We have the man who can explain all of this with clarity on the show THIS Sunday, November 16, 2014–Bill Rousseau–County Clear, Recorder and Assessor! The graph below is a “Follow-Along” for all of our listeners!
This week on the show we are delighted to have William (Bill) Rousseau, Clerk Recorder Assessor for Sonoma County on the air with us. We’ll discuss the current state of property tax assessments, Proposition 13 AND Proposition 8 and how both inter-play in property taxes on YOUR home. Also discussed will be the once a “lifetime” proposition which allows you to transfer your old Prop 13 baseline to another property within the county. See you then! 707-565-1888
