How Property Tax is Calculated in Carson, California

Property tax in Carson, California almost always takes the form of a tax levied on the appraised value of the property in question. Property tax rates in the U.S. range from 0.2% to around 5% of the property's value.

In order to levy this tax, the tax authorities in Carson, California must have a uniform formula for figuring out the value of a given piece of property.
