Butte County Property Tax Reassessments are coming. The Butte County Assessor will be re-assessing damaged properties as quickly as possible, and new tax bills will be issued, with new due dates. They are using the Cal Fire map to determine which properties have been destroyed. That being said, if your home or business was impacted, you should still file the property tax reassessment form on your own — the form is available on the Assessor’s website.The reassessment will adjust property values from Nov. 8 through June 30, 2019 – the new tax bills will represent the pre-fire value of the property for the first four months of the fiscal year — June 30-Oct. 31 — and the reduced value for the rest of the year. The new property tax bills will replace the Dec. 10 deadline for the first installment, with a date 30 days after a new value and a new tax bill are prepared.
