Office of the Taxpayer Advocate


The Office of Taxpayer Advocate is here to help!

The Taxpayer Advocate will:

  • Assist taxpayers whose problems are not being resolved through ordinary Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk (ARCC) or  Treasurer/Tax Collector (TTC) channels.
  • Create meaningful relationships with community partners, especially efforts to reach underserved populations.
  • Offer workshops and educational sessions on various Tax topics and operations of the ARCC.
  • Promote taxpayer issues and innovative approaches to enhanced service delivery from ARCC staff.
  • Provide ARCC information to government, business, and community leaders.
  • Follow State property tax and recordation legislation and provide comment to policy makers.

Please note:

 The Taxpayer Advocate can not provide legal advice to taxpayers, interfere with normal business operations of the ARCC and TTC or change California Tax Law.
