The San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector recently mailed more than 22,000 defaulted bills for a total amount due of $100 million. 

When the 2016-2017 annual secured and supplemental tax bills were not paid by the close of the tax roll on June 30, 2017, the bills went into default and additional penalties and fees were added. 

Supplemental bills are separate and in addition to the annual tax bill.  They are not sent to your lender for payment. The defaulted bills will continue to accumulate penalties at a rate of 1.5% per month (18% per year) until paid in full. 

Partial payments are not accepted. 

You may be eligible to set up a 5-year payment plan for payment of defaulted taxes.  Click here for more information regarding 5-year payment plans.

Penalties may only be canceled under specific conditions as authorized under the California Revenue & Taxation Code.

Penalties will NOT be cancelled for the following reasons:

  • Forgot to pay
  • Financial hardship
  • Lost tax bill
  • Failed to receive a tax bill
  • Thought the delinquent date was April 15th
  • Out of town on delinquent date
  • Payment initiated through Online Bill Pay not received on time
