Information about Property Tax Refunds
Department of Tax and Collections annually issues more than 500,000 property tax bills and collects over $6 billion. The refunds for property taxes come from a variety of sources including but not limited to reduced assessments (re-evaluation of assessed values), overpayments, and duplicate payments. The property tax refunds become unclaimed due to various reasons such as returned mail, uncashed checks, refusal of the funds, or lack of response from notifications.
In accordance with Government Code 29802, any funds that remain unclaimed for more than two years will be removed from the list and transferred to the County's general fund.
