Have your checking account information available or your credit card or Visa Debit card information when you begin the online payment process. To make a payment now, go to Online Payments. There is a maximum of 10 shopping cart items per transaction. If you have more items to pay than the allowable maximum, you must complete the current transaction first, then you will be able to select additional items to pay.
Please use the envelope enclosed with your tax bill and include the payment stub from the bill. If both installments are being paid, please include both payment stubs. Do not attach staples, clips, tape, or correspondence. Property tax payments must be received or have a United States Postal Service (USPS) postmark 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 USPS 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 Postmarks.

Online Banking or Bill Payment Services
Many banks and the Tax Collector recommend that you do Not use these services to pay property taxes. The reason is that Revenue and Taxation Code 2512 states that the Tax Collector must process a payment, received after the delinquency date, as of the date of the United States Postal Service (USPS) postmark. Banking institutions use permit imprint presorted envelopes, which the USPS does not postmark. In the absence of a postmark, we apply penalties based on the date we receive payment. Please read Avoid Penalties by Understanding Postmarks to learn more.
