Property Tax

San Bernardino County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector (ATC) Ensen Mason announced that the last day to file a claim for Unclaimed Property Tax Refunds in San Bernardino County is Tuesday, February 28, 2023, for refunds that were issued prior to July 1, 2018. These refunds are due to a reduction in assessed value after property taxes have been paid. Taxpayers were previously mailed refund claim forms that were never returned for processing or were mailed warrants that were stale-dated.

State law allows for property tax refunds that remain unclaimed after four years to be transferred to the County’s general fund pursuant to order by the Board of Supervisors. The unclaimed refunds that have exceeded the four-year time limit will be presented to the Board of Supervisors on February 28, 2023, to obtain such approval. 

Taxpayers have the ability to search for property tax refunds by the parcel number or property address and request a claim form at or are encouraged to contact the San Bernardino County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector’s Office for immediate assistance at (909) 382-3090.
