A Message From Tom:


The Assessor’s Office is adjusting to meet the new requirements for a “shelter in place” environment.  During these times of uncertainty we will continue to do our best to serve the taxpayers of San Benito County.

Our lobby is currently closed to the public, however you may still contact us by phone or email.



Please utilize the mail or email to send in forms or documents that need to be filed. 

Online filing of your Business Property Statement  is also available  through the link below using your BIN number provided to you in the letter you received in January.



Late on Wednesday May 6th, Governor Gavin Newsom


issued an Executive Order extending the tax filing deadline


for Business Property Tax Statements from May 7, 2020 to


May 31, 2020.  Since this falls on a Sunday, June 1st will


be the last day to file without possibly being subject to a


10% penalty.  This extension gives business owners,


required to file another three weeks to submit their


statements without penalty.

We are available to answer any questions by phone or email.





My staff and I welcome all contacts from the public regarding assessment practices in San Benito County. Property tax laws are frequently complicated and many times require detailed explanations. This office is organized around the principle of , “How can we help you”. This philosophy might collide with the general opinion of government held by some people, but this office is genuinely interested in setting the correct assessed property values and assisting property owners.




The Assessor’s primary task is to determine the taxable value (assessment) of all real and personal property within the county and for preparing the regular and supplemental property tax rolls with integrity and fairness in accordance with the California Constitution and laws and regulations of the State of California and State Board of Equalization. The Assessor’s Office serves the taxpayers of San Benito County with respect; we strive to perform our work in a professional, reliable and cost effective manner. If you have an assessment problem or need general information, please contact us.
