Sold/ split land but received a tax bill for the entire parcel?



  • Did you have an existing agreement in place with the new owners at the time of closing, (if unsure, check with the attorney at the time of closing)
  • The sale/change took place after March 1st (taxable status date)

             *March 1st is the deadline for any parcel changes.

             *Apportionments are not done automatically, the parties must request that the Assessor complete an apportionment of the                            parent parcel.


  • The sale/change took place before March 1st but the deed was filed after the March 1st cutoff.

         *Splits are processed based off of the file date, not the date of sale.



Section 932 & 1104 of real property tax law explains that apportionments are not done automatically due to parties (buyer, seller & lawyer) involved often will come up with an agreement on who will pay what portion of any future tax bills. This renders the assessment apportionment process irrelevant.
