April 11th Delinquent Date Has Passed

The April 11th delinquent date has passed and a 10% penalty plus a $10 fee has applied to the second installment of unpaid property tax bills. The legal basis to waive penalties for late payments is extremely limited.  

Penalty Cancellations

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

Penalties will NOT be cancelled for the following reasons:

  • Forgot to pay.
  • Paid one day late.
  • 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.
