Office of the Assesor-Recorder
San Francisco, CA
Monday, July 20, 2009

“Today Assessor-Recorder Phil Ting announced his office granted a temporary reduction in assessed value to 9,997 homes in San Francisco, which is allowed under state law (Proposition 8) if the current market value is lower than the assessed value. This is the first time since the mid-1990s the Assessor’s office has proactively issued widespread reductions. Despite the reductions, the total 2009 property assessment roll grew 6.98 percent from last year totaling $151.96 billion, which represents secured and unsecured real property and business personal property less exemptions.”
