June 30 Deadline
More than 99% of San Diego County property owners have paid their 2018-2019 property taxes already. However, if you are in the small minority of people who have not paid yet, you have until July 1, 2019, to pay before your bill goes into default and incurs heavier penalties.
Since June 30th falls on a Sunday, you have until the next business day, July 1st, to pay.
Unpaid first or second installment bills (due Dec. 10, 2018 and April 10, 2019) are now delinquent and have incurred a 10% penalty.
You must pay or postmark any unpaid bills by July 1, 2019. Taxes unpaid after that date will become defaulted and will accrue interest at a rate of 18% per year (1.5% per month). A $33 redemption fee will apply.
Did you receive a notice from your lender?
You may have received a notice from your lender about unpaid property tax bills. Although you may have paid your annual bill through your lender, you may still have unpaid supplemental tax bills.
Supplemental tax bills are separate and in addition to the annual property tax bill. They are issued when there is a change in ownership or new construction on a property. Supplemental tax bills are not sent to your lender for payment. The 2018-2019 supplemental tax bills that remain unpaid after June 30th will go into default and accrue an extra 1.5% penalty per month or 18% per year.
