Property Tax is Due April 10th in San Diego…ouch!
The second installment of your property-tax bill is due April 10.
To date, 54 percent of roughly 980,000 mailed tax bills haven’t been paid, the agency said. This year’s property taxes, if all collected, would generate $4.56 billion.
Taxpayers can pay their bills by phone, mail, at a branch location or on the web.
Some of the usual reminders:
• Cash is no longer accepted at the branch locations and is only accepted at the downtown office, 1600 Pacific Highway. Checks and money orders are accepted at all the offices.
• You can pay your bill by mailing your payment, calling (855) 829-3773, visiting sdtreastax.com, or going into any office: 1600 Pacific Highway, room 162 in downtown San Diego; 590 Third Avenue in Chula Vista; 200 South Magnolia in El Cajon; 9225 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., in Kearny Mesa; and 141 E. Carmel Street in San Marcos. The offices will offer extended hours, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., on April 10.
• The tax collector’s office accepts major credit cards including MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover. If you pay with a credit card, then you will be charged a 2.25 percent fee on your property tax bill. To avoid the extra charge, pay online with an e-check, said San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister.
This always puts a damper on my Birthday also being April 10th!
