The total amount of property tax charges in San Diego County and the number of bills that are being mailed out starting Friday reached all-time highs, the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office announced.
The total charge will be $5.66 billion for this fiscal year, compared with the previous high of $5.37 billion in 2015-16. The county is mailing out more than 989,000 bills, about 2,000 more than last year.
“With high demand and a limited supply, the price of housing is on the rise in the county, which means property taxes are also up,” Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister said. “That’s a good sign for the economy — the housing market is coming back stronger than ever.”
The first installment can be paid between Nov. 1 and Dec. 12 — since the usual deadline of Dec. 10 falls on a weekend.
Payments can be made online at sdtreastax.com, by phone at (855) 829- 3773, or by visiting county offices in downtown San Diego, Kearny Mesa, Chula Vista, El Cajon or San Marcos.
