Nearly 1 Million Property Tax Bills Available Now Online
Those itching to pay their property taxes don’t have to wait any longer, San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister announced today. The 2017-2018 secured property tax bills are now available online at www.sdttc.com.
Paying property taxes is simple, thanks to the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s (TTC) online payment system. The mobile-friendly platform makes it free, fast and easy to pay by “e-check.” Click here to watch the TTC’s video about that form of payment.
The printed versions of the 993,821 tax bills are on their way to taxpayers’ mailboxes.
“Rising home prices are pushing up property taxes. Our office is set to collect $6.05 billion in secured property taxes for 2017-2018, compared to $5.68 billion last year,” said McAllister. “We are sending tax bills to 4,732 new properties this cycle, which means building is also on the rise.”
The first installment of the secured property taxes is due on November 1, 2017. The taxes normally become delinquent on December 10, but since that deadline falls on a Sunday, taxpayers will have an extra day to get their payments in by the close of business on Monday, December 11, 2017.
Payments can be made online, by phone at 855-829-3773, by mail, or in person by visiting any of the five branch offices.
“Last year, our office had a 99.2 percent collection rate,” said McAllister. “We’ve seen for a while now that most San Diego taxpayers do the responsible thing and pay their property taxes on time, and we don’t expect this year to be any different.”
