NEWS-LEDGER — JULY 9, 2014 –

(Editor’s note: several additional pieces of information have been added to this article taken from the News-Ledger’s print edition)

Yolo County’s property assessment roll has topped $21 billion for the first time, reports county assessor Joel Butler.

“The improving real estate market and thriving agricultural economy, coupled with new construction and (reassessment due to) changes in ownership” are responsible for lifting the value 6.56 percent this year, to $21.8 billion, he said.

City by city:

Woodland’s assessed values increased by 9.47 percent, West Sacramento’s by 7.14 percent, Winters by 6.15 percent and Davis by 4.49 percent. The unincorporated parts of Yolo County grew in value by 6.11 percent.

Davis has a total (secured and unsecured) property value of about $6.92 billion, followed by West Sacramento with $5.65 billion, Woodland at $4.74 billion,  and Winters at $455 million. Unincorporated areas of the county add another $4.05 billion worth of value to the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

Individual property values are now available at the Yolo County website at www.yolocounty.org/assessor. Make sure to have your street address or Assessor Parcel Number handy to look up your value. If you don’t have computer access, you may call (530) 666-8135 to get your property value information.

Do you think your property is valued — and therefore taxed — too high? You’ll find information on “assessment appeals” at the same website, www.yolocounty.org/assessor.
