Bob Dutton
Assessor-Recorder-
County Clerk

The County Assessor is an elected official and constitutional officer, who is charged by law with the responsibility of independent oversight and preparation of the annual local property assessments, from which property taxes are derived.

The Office of the Assessor locates, inventories, and sets values for all taxable property within San Bernardino County, with the exception of certain State-assessed properties and other specified properties which are designated as exempt from taxation, by law.

Applications may be filed with the State Controller's office beginning October 1, 2016. Click here for an information sheet.

The program application and details are located on Controller's website.


Blue Cut Fire Relief from Assessor-Recorder-County Clerk Office


Last month, the Blue Cut Fire burned through several Cajon Pass communities leaving a wide path of destruction; one of the most costly disasters to strike the county in recent years. To the many residents and property owners who have suffered losses; my offices are available to assist in replacing lost records and provide property tax relief.

For people who have lost vital records such as birth, marriage and death certificates, replacement copies are being provided by the Recorder-Clerk office free of charge.

When requesting free copies of a vital record, victims of the fires should state on the application, “Wildfire,” and complete the sworn statement declaring under penalty of perjury that they are a victim. The application and combined sworn statement must be submitted to complete the request. Click here to download a copy of the Request Form and click here for a copy of the Sworn Statement.

Property tax relief is also available to property owners affected by the fire. My staff is conducting field inspections to identify the fire damaged properties and will be reducing values and notifying owners of any reductions made to their assessed valuation. Property owners will find the Disaster Relief Form at: http://www.dev.sbcounty.gov/Uploads/ARC/Forms/ARP033.pdf


ARC Receives National Award


The Department of the Assessor-Recorder-County Clerk is honored to receive an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties (NACo). Recognizing that many property owners were unaware of the various tax savings programs administered by the Assessor, the Veteran, Senior, and Homeowner Exemption Outreach Program was developed to enable our department to better notify the public of available exemptions. There has been a significant increase in the applications filed since implementing this program and we will continue to be proactive in our efforts to inform the public of the various options and services available to property owners.

Assessed Values to Increase for Some


The real estate market in San Bernardino County has started to recover from historic lows experienced in the last few years. This in turn will cause some property values to increase from the assessed values that were lowered in previous years. Click here for more information.
