Misfortunue or calamity relief under Rev. & Tax. Code section 170 is dependent on whether the Orange County BOS has adopted an ordinance authorizating that relief. (R&T Code section 107(a).) Even if the Board has authorized such relief, they may not have given the assessor authority to process value reductions without an application from the property owner. Ibid.

In my opinion our assessor has several shortcomings; creating property owners from tax relief after their homes burn down is not one of them. Even he knows how to avoid the truly bad press.
