City to send 2024 Real Property Notice of Assessments

News release from City and County of Honolulu, Dec 11, 2023

HONOLULU - The City and County of Honolulu’s Real Property Assessment Division announced Monday that 2024 real property notices of assessment applicable to the 2024-2025 tax year will be distributed this week to property owners across Oʻahu.

On or before December 15, the City and County of Honolulu will distribute approximately 306,000 notices via the United States Postal Service or by email, for those who have subscribed to electronic delivery.

The aggregate assessed valuation of all real property on O‘ahu increased year-to-year from $343.07 billion to $345.77 billion, indicating an approximate increase of 0.79 percent. The assessed values of properties in the “Residential” classification increased from $230.04 billion to $231.96 billion, indicating an approximate increase of 0.83 percent.  

The “Residential A” class, which includes residential properties over $1 million in total value without a homeowner’s exemption, decreased from $46.98 billion to $46.02 billion, a decrease of 2.05 percent, while the “Hotel and Resort” class increased by 0.06 percent. The “Commercial” class increased by 0.14 percent, and the “Industrial” class decreased by 0.67 percent.  

These percentages represent island-wide classification totals and may not reflect the changes in valuation for an individual property or a specific neighborhood as a whole.

The notice of assessment is not a tax bill. The notice of assessment provides the property’s ID/Tax Map Key, assessed value, tax classification, applied exemption amount, applicable special assessment and net taxable value.  

All 2024 assessed values reflect the value of real property in their entirety (fee simple) as of October 1, 2023 and are derived from sales of similar property through June 30, 2023.

Information stated on the real property notice of assessment is used to determine the real property tax bill amount. The property’s net taxable value, which is stated on the notice of assessment, is taxed per $1,000 of value at the property’s applicable classification tax rate. Each classification tax rate will be set by the City Council in June 2024. The first tax bill for the tax year will be mailed in July 2024.  

There are videos available to help explain the valuation process of residential properties and the appeal process that are available to view at
