Los Angeles Property Tax

How much are my California Property Taxes?

The state of California property Tax rate is approximately ~1.25% of your property’s assessed value.  There is a base 1% Ad Valorem Tax and then an additional 0.1% to  .025% in miscellaneous fees depending on your municipality. For new homeowners, your assessed value will be the purchase price of your home. California has one of the lowest property tax rates in the country (it’s the only Low tax in California!). Low property tax is a real benefit to property owners, it makes owning property more affordable and also raises property value.

How do I look up my Property Tax Rate?

LA Property Tax Rates are determined by your “TRA”. The TRA appears on your property tax bill. If you don’t know your TRA I have grouped them by the city so you can check any one of those to get an estimate of your tax rate. There is some variation in tax rates in Cities, especially if there are larger cities. To check your rate, just type in the TRA into the Los Angeles Property Tax Rate Lookup tool I liked to here:

Los Angeles Sample Property Tax Bill

How much do my California Property Taxes change each year?

The current California Property tax laws went into effect in 1978 with the passage of Proposition 13. In addition to a very low tax rate of 1.25%- proposition 13 placed a cap on the amount your taxes can be raised each year to a maximum of 2%. The Real Estate Market goes up and down. In years where the market is declining, it is possible to lower your annual property tax bill by using Proposition 8– the decline in value reassessment.

Historically, long term home appreciation in California has far out paced the 2% property tax cap (2% is less than annual average inflation in Los Angeles which averages 3%), and so for homeowners that have owned their property for a long time- 10 years, 20 years, 30 years, they experience big tax savings. Their property taxes are less than the current market value of their home. Over the years, this 2% cap adds up to huge tax savings!

 

When are my Property Taxes Due?

Nobody likes getting the property tax bill in the mail. For one thing, they are a big bill! Since Property taxes are not charged monthly, it is a good idea to plan ahead because you will be charged for 6 months of property tax at one time.

Property taxes are paid in two equal installments each year. It’s ‘that time again’ in November, and February.

1st Property Tax installment

Bill sent November 1st, delinquent and subject to late penality if not post marked Dec 10th

2nd Property Tax installment

Bill sent February 1st, delinquent and subject to late penalty if not post marked April 10th.

How can I pay my Property Taxes?

How much is the late fee if I am late on my property tax?

You have 40 days to pay your property tax bill before it becomes delinquent. The Late fee is quite large- it’s a 10% late fee– ouch! If your biannual property tax bill is $5,000- the fee would be an additional $500.

What is a Supplemental Tax Bill?

For new owners, the first year that they own a property, they will more likely than not get a supplemental tax bill in addition to their normal biannual property tax bills. First year Homeowners sometimes wonder if this supplemental bill is a mistake, or if their property taxes have gone up. The answer is no, it is not a mistake, and no, their property taxes have not been raised.  The Supplemental tax bill is just one extra payment in the first year to raise your property tax to it’s new level if it is higher than the previous owner’s tax, which it almost always is.
