Annually, whoever owns taxable property on January 1 (the lien date) becomes liable for a tax calculated at 1 percent of the â€œtaxableâ€ value of the property. Article XIII A of the California Constitution (Proposition 13) also permits adding to the 1 percent tax rate a rate needed to pay interest and redemption charges for voter-approved indebtedness. Such additional rates will vary from area to area throughout the state. Statewide, the total tax rate ranges between 1 percent and 1.06 percent.
Change in Ownership and New Construction
The assessed value for most property taxed under Article XIII A is the prior yearâ€™s assessed value adjusted for inflation up to 2 percent. However, if there has been a change in ownership or completed new construction, the new assessed value will be the market value of the property that changed ownership or was newly constructed. That property will also be assessed on the supplemental roll.
