Board of Equalization and 58 County Property Tax Assessors Meet in Redding

Sacramento – The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) will hold its annual meeting with the state’s 58 county assessors on October 22, 2013 in Redding. This annual meeting is held in conjunction with the 111th California Assessors’ Association Annual Conference.

“California’s county assessors are vital partners in the work of property tax collection and administration,” said Board of Equalization Member George Runner. “I look forward to our meeting in Redding next week, as well as continuing to work together to ensure fair tax treatment for all Californians.”

State law requires the BOE to meet with Assessors at least once a year to discuss issues relating to the administration of property assessment and taxation laws, and to focus on matters to promote uniformity of procedures and assessment in property taxation throughout California.
