Deadline approaches for property tax reduction


Property owners in San Mateo County have until Feb. 15 to apply for a property review through the county's "Decline in Value" program, says county assessor Mark Church.

If a property's market value is less than its assessed value, the property is eligible for temporary tax relief.

To apply for a review, property owners may complete the online request form on the assessor's website, download and print the request form on the website, call the office and ask for a form by mail, or visit the office. The review is free of charge.
