Property Tax Delinquent if Not Paid By April 10, 2020
The Yolo County Tax Collector’s Office reminds taxpayers who own property in Yolo County that the second installment of 2019-20 Secured Property Tax, due February 1, 2020, will be delinquent if not paid by April 10, 2020.
Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, we strongly encourage taxpayers to remit tax payments electronically via the web, by mail, or automated phone system. Doing so will aid in achieving social distancing protocols suggested by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The Department of Financial Services will be closed from March 19, 2020 to April 7, 2020 to comply with Public Health Officer guidance. Please visit: www.yolocounty.org/DFS for additional information about our office hours and changes.
To avoid a penalty, property taxes must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 10, 2020, after which a 10 percent penalty and $10 cost must be added. Envelopes must be postmarked no later than April 10, 2020 if taxes are paid by mail. It is suggested that payments be mailed a few days before the April 10 deadline to ensure 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.
Taxpayers now have the option of paying property taxes by electronic check (no charge) or credit card (plus a 2.25 percent convenience fee). These payments can be made via www.yolocounty.org/paytax (select Property Tax button) or by phone at (866) 895-5027. Payments made using either of these two systems must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on April 10, 2020 to avoid penalties.
