It takes three separate Los Angeles County offices, Assessor, Auditor-Controller and Treasurer & Tax Collector to produce and account for your property tax bill and payment.

For your convenience, the County has a 24-hour, 7 days a week general information pre-recorded tape PROPTAX. Call (213)974-2111 or 1(888)807-2111. During normal business hours, an operator will be available after the message has run. Please bear in mind that during installment periods, our telephones are very busy. For the hearing impaired, call teleprinter (213)974-2196.

The Los Angeles County Assessor establishes the assessed value of your property by appraising the value of that property under applicable State law. The assessed value of your property is placed on the "Assessment Roll". The Assessor also approves and applies all exemptions which are added to the Assessment Roll. The Roll is then presented to the Los Angeles County Auditor-Controller for further processing.

The items listed below are within the jurisdiction of the Assessor's Office and questions regarding these areas should be directed to that office; or visit the Assessor's Website at
