Paying by e-Check is fast & free

SAN DIEGO, CA, November 30, 2023 – San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister is reminding property owners that there are twelve days until the December 11, 2023 deadline to pay property taxes. The total amount owed is $8.63 billion dollars, $566 million more than last year’s total of $8.1 billion.  

“The deadline to pay property taxes is twelve days away, so we call this time of year ‘The Twelve Days of Taxes’ -- since there are twelve more days to pay without getting a penalty,” said McAllister. 

1,013,632 secured tax bills were sent in early October and are online to view and pay at  sdttc.com. Taxpayers can pay online free using an e-Check (electronic check), and will get an immediate, emailed confirmation. “More than 70% of taxpayers now pay electronically because it is secure, fast, and easy,” continued McAllister.  

The first property tax installment was due on November 1, 2023 and will become delinquent after December 11, 2023. The second installment is due February 1, 2024 and becomes delinquent after April 10, 2024.  

“Property taxes fund essential county and city services,” said McAllister. “Public health, public schools, and many more critical services are funded by these tax dollars.” Click here to see how property taxes are allocated.
