Property Tax Delinquent if Not Paid By December 10

Oct 21, 2020 12:00AM ● By Jenny Tan, Public Information Officer, Yolo County

WOODLAND, CA (MPG) -  The Yolo County Tax Collector’s Office reminds taxpayers who own property in Yolo County that the first installment of 2020-21 Secured Property Tax, due November 1, 2020, will be delinquent if not paid by December 10, 2020.

Property taxes are a critical funding source for local governments including cities, school districts, local cemetery districts, community colleges, rural fire districts and others. For example, more than half of property taxes received go to local school districts while the property tax portion that rural fire districts receive help fund over 90% of their revenue for the entire year. The County receives about 9% of property taxes, which is 9 cents of every dollar.

To avoid a penalty, property taxes must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 10, 2020, after which a 10 percent penalty must be added. Envelopes must be postmarked no later than December 10, 2020 if taxes are paid by mail. It is suggested that payments be mailed a few days before the December 10 deadline to ensure that the envelope will have the proper postmark. The only acceptable postmark for deadline payments is a U.S. Postal Service postmark.

Taxpayers have the option of paying property taxes by credit card (plus a 2.34 percent convenience fee) or electronic check (no charge). These payments can be made via www.yolocounty.org (select Property Tax Parcel Number icon) or by phone at (877) 590-0714. Payments made using either of these two systems must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on December 10, 2020 to avoid penalties. 

Current law does not relieve property owners of payment responsibility or the imposition of penalties because of failure to receive a tax bill.
