Branches Closed to Public Due to Coronavirus

San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister, in partnership with Supervisor Jim Desmond and Supervisor Kristin Gaspar, sent a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom to ask that he expand property tax penalty cancellation criteria to include economic hardship caused by the coronavirus. Under current state law, our office cannot grant penalty cancellations due to economic hardship.

All five Treasurer-Tax Collector branches are closed to the public until further notice effective March 19, 2020, in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Property taxes can still be paid on this website. You can get started by clicking the "Pay Bill" button on the top right of this page. 

“The health of our customers and employees is our number one concern,” said McAllister. ““We want everyone to be able to pay their property taxes without coming to our offices.  Our online payment system at sdttc.com provides an easy and safe way to pay the second installment of their 2019-2020 taxes before April 10 to avoid a 10% penalty.”

The delinquent date of April 10 will not change. State law governs when property taxes are due and payable. The second installment of property taxes is due no later than April 10th.  State action would be required to change the date. Critical county, school and local city financial obligations are dependent on property taxes. They fund essential public services, including coronavirus response.
