San Diego property tax deadline

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister reminded San Diego taxpayers Monday that they have one extra day to pay their property tax bills this year.

The tax payment is due April 11 because the 10th falls on Sunday this year, McAllister said.

Tax collector branch offices in San Diego, Chula Vista, San Marcos, El Cajon and Kearny Mesa will offer extended hours next Monday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and drop boxes will be available over the weekend.

Payments can also be made by calling (877) 829-4732, or online at sdtreastax.com.

McAllister said tax bills were mailed to 983,329 San Diego County residents last September, and 561,356 remain unpaid, totaling $1.5 billion. He expects property taxes to generate $4.45 billion.

Payments received after April 11th will be assessed a $10 fee and a 10 percent penalty.

“We can expect a busy week at the Tax Collectors Office because we have more than 50 percent left of the second installment to collect. We are prepared and ready to serve our taxpayers,” McAllister said.
