Oakhurst Fire Relief bill
Berryhill Bulletin, October 2014

Fire Fee/Property Tax Relief for Structures Damaged in Wildfires
A bill that would help homeowners seek much needed relief from the state fire fee after a catastrophic fire or other natural disaster has been signed into law. AB 2048 (Dahle) exempts homeowners whose homes have been destroyed by wildfires from paying the state fire fees. This bill was unanimously supported by Senate Republicans as a way to alleviate, at least minimally, homeowners’ losses. The bill also simplifies the appeals process for those who feel they’ve been unfairly assessed. Just this month, homeowners have lost over 150 homes to wildfire. Dangerously dry conditions have already resulted in 1,000 more fires than would be expected in a normal year.

In addition to the bill waiving the fire fee, property tax relief is available to both residential and commercial property owners whose property has been damaged or destroyed during the recent wildfires. This tax relief program requires the reassessment of the property to reflect its damaged condition. The reduced value will remain in effect until the property is rebuilt or repaired. More importantly, owners can retain the previous taxable value if the property is rebuilt in a like or similar manner. In other words, the property tax assessment will not increase beyond what it was prior to the fire. Property owners should check with their local tax assessor to determine how to claim reassessment of their property’s value after damage by wildfire.

Larry GambleThanks for the clarification. Sounds as though it is a very fair and equitable bill.23 hours ago
Kevin DAsshatThank you Betty Linn, Points for damaged homeowners to consider is not only the property value of a rebuilt home, but what REALLY is the value in a devastated forest area. Not a lot of visual appeal for quite a few years.22 hours ago   ·  1
