| Property Tax Postponement Program
- On September 28, 2014, the Governor signed AB 2231 (Statutes of 2014, Chapter 703), which reinstates the State Controller's Property Tax Postponement Program (PTP). This program will allow senior citizens, blind, and disabled persons with an annual household income of $35,500 or less to apply to defer payment of current year property taxes on their principal residence.
In December 2014, we updated our online payment system.
Among the major changes we
made are the following:
- The payment entry, confirmation, and receipt pages were updated to make the documents
easier to read.
- The business/corporate option for using electronic check (eCheck) was added.
- Language was added to clarify an authorization for a one-time eCheck. Please note
that once you click on the “Process Payment” button, you will not have an opportunity
to make changes to or revoke your authorization for this payment, as there is not
a sufficient amount of time for you to do so since your authorization will be processed
immediately. However, if you decide after you click the “Process Payment” button
that you did not want to make this payment, you still have the option of contacting
your financial institution to place a stop payment order. If a stop payment order
is not received by your financial institution in a timely manner, your payment order
will not be stopped.
- Language was added to clarify the service fee charges related to credit card usage for property tax payments. Please ensure that you agree with the
service fee(s) provided before clicking on the “Process Payment” button.

between the Department of Public Health and the Treasurer and Tax Collector. Department
of Public Health's Environmental Health Division anticipates mailing out the 2014/15

Los Angeles County Tax Collector reminds taxpayers that property tax payments must
be received or postmarked by the delinquency date to avoid penalties. If a payment
is received after the delinquency date, with no postmark, the payment is considered
late and penalties will be imposed, in accordance with State law. Taxpayers who
send a payment by mail are cautioned that the United States Postal Service only
postmarks certain mail depending on the type of postage used, and may not postmark
mail on the same day deposited by a taxpayer. To assist taxpayers in understanding
how to avoid penalties that could result from postmark issues, the Tax Collector
has compiled important related information on how to Avoid Penalties by Understanding
Requirement for Registration of Tax Agents
