Mission Dolores has a high number of foreclosures. For this reason, the San Francisco Assessor’s office announced that it granted property tax temporary reductions to homeowners and wants more neighborhoods to participate.
Other neighborhoods that were given high rates of temporary reductions were:
• Downtown Tenderloin
• Van Ness/Civic Center
• Russian Hill
According to the SF Assessor’s Website, filing an informal review for a temporary reduction in assessed value is simple and free. The grant reductions for next year will begin application processing January of 2011.
The homeowner is asked to complete and return a basic one page form, available at the office or online at www.sfassessor.org.
