“The Board of Supervisors approval of this ordinance will provide direct relief to qualifying disaster survivors"

WOODLAND, CA (MPG) - The amendment to a local ordinance proposed by the Yolo County Assessor’s Office was unanimously approved at the April 6, 2021 County Board of Supervisors meeting.  The ordinance offers assistance to qualified property owners who have relocated to Yolo County after the loss of their homes due to the recent wildfires and floods in California. The ordinance allows those individuals who qualify to carryover their previous county’s property tax base to their replacement property in Yolo County.  

In recent years, our state has seen an increase in residents impacted by natural disasters. Victims have faced significant and sudden tax hikes when relocating across county lines, sometimes just a few miles from their damaged homes.

This ordinance allows for those individuals who lost their home prior to the timeline set by Proposition 19 to potentially qualify for tax relief. If you have questions on tax relief and if you qualify please contact the Assessor’s office at (530) 666-8135 or [email protected]. You can also schedule an appointment: https://yolocountyace.as.me/schedule.php

Less than a quarter of all the counties in the state have passed such an ordinance to date. “The Board of Supervisors approval of this ordinance will provide direct relief to qualifying disaster survivors who have already moved to Yolo County and made this community their home. We are proud to have worked collaboratively with the Board to initiate the implementation of this tax relief within Yolo County,” says Jesse Salinas, Yolo County Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters.

Forms are available on the Assessor’s Office website: https://www.yolocounty.org/government/general-government-departments/assessor/forms. We encourage Yolo County residents to connect with Yolo County ACE – Assessor/Clerk-Recorder/Elections on Facebook: @YoloACE, Instagram: @YoloCoACE, and Twitter: @YoloCoACE to receive the most up to date information about our offices.
