In Red Bluff, California, the government imposes a tax (a legally-mandated payment made to the government) on real property. "Real property" is defined as any piece of land, or object permanently or semi-permanently adhered to the land (such as buildings, trees, minerals, etc.).

In Red Bluff, California, property taxes are measured as a percentage of the land's value. They are most often paid annually. But in any case, they are paid at some set interval.

The federal government almost never imposes property taxes directly. Property taxes are collected nearly exclusively by state, county, and local governments.

How Property Tax is Calculated in Red Bluff, California

Red Bluff, California property taxes are usually calculated as a percentage of the value of the taxable property. Rates vary widely across the country, usually ranging from less than 1% at the low end, to about 5% at the high end.

To collect the property tax, the authorities of Red Bluff, California have to first determine the value of a particular piece of land.

In some ways, value is a subjective thing. For example, the home in which you grew up is probably worth far more to you than its market value. To get around this, the government uses nothing but objective factors in determining how much a piece of real property is worth.

Therefore, the people in charge of appraising the value of property in Red Bluff, California have to consider only objective, factual criteria when calculating the value of a piece of land. These criteria include the state of the real estate market, the zoning of the land (which determines how it can be used), and any improvements that have been made to the land, among other things.
