If you disagree with the taxable value of your property, you may request a review of your assessment. All original data used to assess your property and any additional information provided by you will be reviewed by the assessor to determine if the assessed value should be changed. Requests for assessment reviews must be submitted to the Assessor's Office at:
1 Crescent Street
Quincy, CA 95971
If the review of your property assessment is not resolved to your satisfaction, you may have the opportunity to file an assessment appeal.
Differences over the valuation of the property may be handled by the Assessment Appeals Board (AAB). The AAB considers all evidence presented by the property owner and the assessor at a formal hearing. After hearing evidence, the AAB then establishes the value of the property in question.
Assessment appeals must be filed with the Plumas County clerk of the Board of Equalization at:
520 Main Street
Quincy, CA 95971

If you have questions about filing an assessment appeal or would like an application, please view our answers to frequently asked questions below or contact the county clerk of the Board of Equalization at (530) 283-6170.
- How do I appeal a supplemental assessment?
You must file an application for reduced assessment no later than 60 days from the date of mailing of this notice. We always encourage you to contact our office at (530) 283-6380 for a review of your assessment prior to filing a formal appeal. Please note: If there have been multiple changes of ownership within the same tax year, the supplemental notice may reflect no change in value for the subsequent transfers, although supplemental taxes or a refund may be due if there has been an increase or decrease in value since lien date, January 1. Supplemental taxes are based on the change in value from lien date to the date of transfer, prorated for your period of ownership.
- How do I appeal a base-year value assessment?
You must file an application for reduced assessment during the regular equalization period, between July 2 through November 30, inclusive, for the year in which the base year value assessment was initially placed on the assessment roll or in any of the following three assessment years. We always encourage you to contact our office at (530) 283-6380 for a review of your assessment prior to filing a formal appeal.

- Within 12 months following the month of notification of the assessment, if you and the assessor agree that there was an error in the exercise of the assessor’s judgment in determining the full cash value of the property and a written stipulation is filed according to Section 1607
