FAQ Detail

bullet I no longer own my business, why am I being billed?
  Business personal property taxes are similar to vehicle registration fees. If you are the owner of the record as of January 1 (the lien date), you are responsible for the taxes for the entire year. Even if you sell, dispose, or remove the property after January 1, you are still legally responsible for the entire tax bill. We cannot prorate the tax bill. Any proration of the tax amount is strictly a private matter between buyer and seller.

If you sold, disposed or removed your personal property prior to January 1 and receive a tax bill, you should immediately contact the Assessor's Office. The regional office telephone number is printed on the tax bill in the Orange Box underneath the Assessed Values. If you do not have a bill, call the Assessor s Office at (213) 974-8613. You may also email the Assessor s Office at

Until the bill is cancelled on the Tax Collector's System by the Auditor/Controller, collection attempts will continue, including the filing of a tax lien.
