Property Tax Overview

The Assessor, Auditor, and Treasurer-Tax Collector work together to produce and account for your property tax bill and payment. The Clerk of the Board oversees assessment appeals.

The Assessor...

establishes the assessed value of your property by appraising the value of that property under applicable State laws.

The Auditor Controller...

adds direct assessments to the assessment roll, then applies the tax rates, which consists of general (1%) levy and debt service (voter & bonded) tax rates, to the value to create an extended assessment roll.

The Treasurer Tax Collector...

receives the extended assessment roll, prints, and mails the property tax bills to the name and address of record.  The Treasurer-Tax Collector collects the taxes and invests the proceeds in the Treasurer’s Pooled Investment Fund for later distribution by the Auditor-Controller to taxing entities throughout Riverside County.

The Clerk of the Board...

receives and processes applications for changed assessment; and provides assistance to the general public on the assessment appeals process.
