Andal Announces Assessment Practices Survey Released for Glenn County

Dean Andal, Chairman, State Board of Equalization announced today the release of an assessment practices survey report on Glenn County.

Approximately once every five years, the BOE conducts a review of each county's assessment functions. Issued as "Assessment Practices Surveys," these reports make recommendations to strengthen or improve local property tax assessment programs.

The current report provides some recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the assessor's operations. The recommendations include:

  • Consider values listed in recognized manufactured home guides when appraising manufactured homes.
  • Increase documentation of possessory interest appraisals.
  • Require a situs inspection for mandatory audit accounts.

The BOE's County Property Tax Division conducted the review of the assessor's operation to ensure that properties are being assessed properly and efficiently. The review focused on the quality of the 1997-98 Glenn County local assessment roll, which contained 19,071 assessments with an enrolled taxable value of $1,460,012,000.
