Property Tax Delinquent if Not Paid By April 10

Property Tax Delinquent if Not Paid By April 10

The Yolo County Tax Collector’s Office reminds taxpayers who own property in Yolo County that the second installment of 2014-15 Secured Property Tax, due February 1, 2015, will be delinquent if not paid by April 10, 2015.

To avoid a penalty, property taxes must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 10, 2015, after which a 10 percent penalty and $10.00 cost must be added.  Envelopes must be postmarked no later than April 10, 2015 if taxes are paid by mail.  It is suggested that payments be mailed a few days before the April 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. 

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