PAY YOUR PROPERTY TAXES

PAYMENT METHODS

ONLINE eCHECK

There is no cost to you for electronic check (eCheck) payments. Your Secured Property Tax Bill contains your Assessor’s Identification Number (AIN) and Personal Identification Number (PIN), which you will need to complete the transaction. Each eCheck transaction is limited to $999,999.99. When paying by eCheck, your bank account must be Automated Clearing House (ACH)-enabled, meaning the transaction can settle through the ACH Network. If your bank account has a debit block to prevent unauthorized organizations from debiting your account via ACH, you must notify your bank to authorize ACH debits from Los Angeles County with a debit filter with the Company Identification Number of 0 0 0 0 0 7 9 1 6 1. Los Angeles County updated its Company Identification Number in September 2018, so you must update this Company Identification Number if you previously had a debit filter on your bank account.

ONLINE CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD

STATEMENT FROM KEITH KNOX, TREASURER AND TAX COLLECTOR, REGARDING PENALTY CANCELLATION RELATED TO COVID-19

Statement in Other Languages

I understand that the public health crisis continues to be a very stressful time for everyone, and my office is committed to helping in any way we can.  We have a long history of working with residents and property owners in times of emergency, including our recent wildfires.  The COVID-19 crisis is no exception.  If you are impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, you may have late penalties cancelled if you were unable to pay your property tax bills by the delinquency date.

State law allows me to consider circumstances beyond a taxpayer’s control, which prevented the timely payment of property taxes.  I want to be considerate of COVID-19 related circumstances impacting you.

Beginning the day after the delinquency date for property tax bills, my office began accepting Penalty Cancellation Requests (request) related to COVID-19 on our website.  If you have specific questions regarding this matter, please review these Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). FAQs in Other Languages

If you are impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, you must complete and submit a request online for each property tax bill, including a detailed statement of how the COVID-19 crisis prevented you from making a timely payment.  If you are unable to do so online, you must contact our office at (213) 974-2111 to complete your request.

If you are able to pay the base tax amount due at this time, please do so.  In addition, my office accepts partial payments, if you are not able to pay the entire base tax amount due all at once.

While my office is processing COVID-19 related requests, no additional penalties, interest, costs or fees will be imposed on your property tax amount due. Do not be alarmed if you go online or receive a notice/statement from our office and see penalties added to your property tax(es) for the second installment – it does not mean we have rejected your request. You will continue to receive automated delinquent/defaulted property tax notices, including the upcoming Statement of Prior Year Taxes, from our office until we have processed your request.

We will review each request on its individual circumstances.  We will contact you should we need additional information to support a request, or to provide payment and time frame options to you, once we determine the outcome of your request.  Please note that we will not call unannounced and ask for sensitive personal information over the telephone.  I ask for your patience regarding processing times as we work through these requests.

Thank you
