Data Validation Forms mailed mid-March

In preparation for our 2025 revaluation, the Orange County Tax office is asking property owners for assistance in reviewing the data that we have on your property for accuracy. To do this, we have mailed out Data Validation forms (PDF) with information about the property and we ask that if you see any errors that you return the form to us with the corrections. This can be done in person, through the mail, email or online.
