The City of Lodi contracts with an outside firm for assessment services. The assessors’ role is to discover, list and place a value on all taxable real and personal property in the city in a uniform manner.
The property assessment is a value placed upon your property which determines what portion of the local property tax levy will be borne by your property. Your property assessment is an estimate of the market value of your property.
The company keeps property records which include square footage, number of rooms, year built and other pertinent information.
While the city encourages anyone with concerns or questions regarding their property assessment to contact the assessor at any time throughout the year, property owners may schedule an appointment at the Open Book meeting before filing a formal objection for the Board of Review to discuss the value placed on their property. Notice of the Open Book meeting is published in the Lodi Enterprise and posted at City Hall. You may also subscribe to the Assessor Calendar, which will notify you when the Open Book meeting is scheduled. Additionally, owners with changes in property value will be notified by the assessor of the Open Book date and times.
Board of Review
The Board of Review is a quasi-judicial body which hears formal objections to property assessments. Any objections should be made in writing and filed with the City Clerk before the public hearings of the Board. Notice of Board of Review meetings is published in the Lodi Enterprise and posted at City Hall. You may also subscribe to the Assessor Calendar, which will notify you when the Board of Review meeting is scheduled.
