Message from Sean Saldavia, Assessor

Welcome to the Santa Cruz County Assessor website. Our site is designed to provide you with easy access to the information and services that our office provides to the citizens of Santa Cruz County. I hope you find it a useful resource for practical information about property values and the assessment process. We appreciate and seek your comments and suggestions about our service and ways to improve our website. Please let us know what you think by sending us an email.

***New information on Assessment Appeals*** - The State Board of Equalization developed a video designed to provide information to taxpayers regarding the appeals process. The video is entitled Your Assessment Appeal and was developed as a collaborative effort between the Board's Taxpayers' Rights Advocate Office and the County-Assessed Properties Division. Additionally, assistance and input was provided by many of the counties. The video is divided into segments.
