The San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office mailed out more than 1 million 2020-21 secured property tax bills Thursday.
The first property tax installment is due Nov. 1 and becomes delinquent after Dec. 10, according to the local Treasurer-Tax Collector’s office.
All 1,004,808 bills are available to view and pay at sdttc.com.
The Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office says rising home prices and new residential units — most of which are new condominiums — have contributed to an additional $370 million owed by property taxpayers this year, exceeding last year’s total of $6.9 billion.
“These property tax bills are expected to generate $7.27 billion — money on which our local cities and the county depend,” said San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister. “Public health, voting administration, schools, and many more essential services are funded by property tax dollars, so we encourage you to pay your taxes as early as possible.”
The Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office says delinquent dates will not be extended due to COVID-19, and those who cannot pay property taxes on time for pandemic-related reasons must submit a penalty cancellation request, along with payment and printed evidence to prove COVID-10 impacts.
