The Los Angeles County Office of the Assessor, led by Jeffrey Prang, received a near-perfect rating of 99.67 in the most recent survey of its practices and performance by the California State Board of Equalization.
The rating reflects the completeness and accuracy of the Assessment Roll, which is the list of all taxable properties Los Angeles County and their values.
“In the area of administration, the Assessor is effectively managing staffing, assessment appeals, disaster relief, and exemptions,” the report stated.
“The survey gives us a great opportunity to reflect on how we can be of the greatest service to the public,” Prang said. “I want to thank the Assessor’s Office staff for the continued professionalism that has made such a positive review possible.”
Although the County Assessor has the primary responsibility for local property assessment, the Board of Equalization ensures that assessor’s offices across California maintain fair and equitable assessments.
The Assessment Practices Survey is a periodic evaluation of all California Assessors to make sure they meet State standards. The report is based on a sample of the 2015-16 Assessment Roll, as well as other records and interviews with staff and public agency officials.
