The Property Tax Validator is a free tool you can use to quickly determine if your home has been fairly assessed. This tool calculates property tax based on current (2017) data for homes in California valued from $100,000 to $2.5 million and purchased after January 1, 1989. The Validator’s automated system quickly analyzes comparable homes in your area to determine if the tax assessment is valid. If the data for the county shows that your home may be overvalued, you'll want to consider an appeal.

If your home is not part of our automated system, we are happy to review your circumstances manually. Please email and we will quickly reply with your information. Our apologies for the inconvinence.
