Some San Diego County residents will be receiving property tax refunds

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - About 6,100 property tax refunds totaling $1.6 million are being mailed to San Diego County residents over the next couple of days, it was announced Friday.

The average property tax refund is $264, according to San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister.

Since January, the county Treasurer-Tax Collector's office has mailed 29,386 property tax refund checks, worth $13.9 million.

According to McAllister, property sales over the last six to eight months have resulted in a large number of "negative" reassessments.

"More housing sales mean more supplemental bills," McAllister said.

"As sale activity picks up, we can anticipate more negative supplemental bills and refunds, provided the sales price is lower than the previously assessed value of the property."
