For California property tax purposes, effective September 29, 2020, the two-year deadline by which a county board is required to render a final determination on a property tax assessment appeal qualified application is extended until March 31, 2021. For these purposes, a “qualified application” means a pending application for reduction in assessment of property taxes that is timely filed with the county board and has a two-year deadline occurring from March 4, 2020, and before March 31, 2021. Additionally, the law allows the county boards to hear appeals remotely. Remotely conducted hearings include the use of video, audio, and telephonic means for remote appearances; the electronic exchange and authentication of documentary evidence; e-filing and e-service; the use of remote interpreting; and the use of remote reporting and electronic recording to make the official record of an action or proceeding.
