Q.When is California real estate reappraised?
A.In California, real estate is reappraised when a change-in-ownership occurs, and upon completion of new construction.
Except in these two instances, property tax assessments cannot be increased by more than 2% annually, based on the California Consumer Price Index.
The property tax rate is presently 1% plus any bonds, fees, or special charges that apply in your local area.
