Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva’s property tax deadline reminder

Dear Friends,

The Federal and State Governments have granted extensions for both the Federal and State Income Tax deadlines to July 15, 2020.

However, this does not pertain to the State of California Property Tax Deadline of April 10, 2020.

In many local governments, property taxes represent one of the largest single annual revenue sources and pays for local government services and public safety that you receive daily during the year. In addition, schools are one of the largest recipients of property taxes here in Orange County. Taxpayers that are not able to make their property tax payment by April 10, 2020, due to COVID-19, are expected to submit a Penalty Cancellation Form and documentation to support the claim. For your Secured Property Tax payment bill that is due on February 1, 2020 a grace period has been extended to April 10.

I appreciate those taxpayers that can pay by the April 10, 2020 date as these dollars will be allocated in April to the local agencies that provide day-to-day services to taxpayers. I appreciate your assistance during this very challenging time.
