Secured Taxes Payment Methods

 

SAVE MONEY! SAVE TIME! PAY ONLINE!

Pay your taxes online using your checking account or credit/debit card. You will need your Assessorís Identification Number (AIN) to search and retrieve payment information.

There is no charge for electronic check payments. You will need to use a Personal Identification Number (PIN), which is printed on your original tax bill, to complete the transaction. Each transaction is limited to $999,999.99.

The PIN cannot be provided by telephone, e-mail or fax. We can only mail a copy of the original bill to the property address or mailing address we currently have on record. For a copy of the original bill contact us at info@ttc.lacounty.gov, be sure to list your AIN and use the phrase "Duplicate Bill" in the subject or call us at 1(888) 807-2111, press 1, 5, and then press 6 to reach an agent.

For questions regarding online payments by electronic check, please email us at echeck@ttc.lacounty.gov.

You may also make Online Payments by using a credit card or Visa Debit card. However, there are processing fees when paying by credit/debit card. Each transaction is limited to $99,999.99, including all service fees. Electronic payments can be made 24/7 - Payments are accepted up until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the delinquency date. For questions regarding online payments by credit/debit card, please email us at ccard@ttc.lacounty.gov.

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.


Mailed Payments

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 mailing your payment near the delinquency date, be sure to obtain a certificate of mailing from the USPS to reflect a timely payment. 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.
