Property Affected by the Flood

Has your property suffered or been destroyed by the Sonoma County Floods? The Assessor's Office is here to help you during this difficult time.

It is important to know that you have 12 months from the event date to file the Calamity Damage Reassessment form, so you can wait until your insurance agency has inspected your property before filling out the form.

If you will be living somewhere else for an extended period of time, please fill out a Change of Mailing Address Form right away so that we can contact you if needed.

Clerk-Recorder-Assessor & Registrar of Voters

On October 30, 2001, Sonoma County merged two previously separate departments, the Clerk-Recorder and the Assessor, into the combined Sonoma County Clerk-Recorder-Assessor-Registrar of Voters Department. This merger is an effort to provide better-integrated, efficient, and public-focused services to you, the Sonoma County taxpayer.
