Urgent filing deadline for tax appeals: 9/15/14 in 11 California counties, 11/30/14 for all other counties.
No one wants to pay more tax than required by law. California Proposition 8 allows for a temporary reduction in property tax if the property value is less than the assessed value. However, in order to get a reduction, you need to file an Application for Changed Assessment with your county by the due date. Once the deadline passes, you lose your rights to appeal the assessed value - that may cost the property owner thousands!
