Together with Peter Finie of Vulcan Materials Company, I will be making a very informative presentation on California property taxes at the upcoming California Construction and Industrial Materials Association’s (CalCIMA) 2011 Education Conference in Monterey. Our presentation, “Are Your Taxes Too High?,” will examine a number of property tax issues from an operator’s perspective, as well as an attorney’s perspective.
Property tax revenues have been steadily declining the past three years. In the face of declining revenues, Assessors are becoming more aggressive than ever in computing assessed property values for property tax purposes. This presentation will highlight what is assessed, who is assessed, how values are derived, who your worst enemy is and why, and what you can do to make sure your tax bill is fairly computed.
