The first installment is due and payable on November 1. However, you have until 5:00 pm on December 10 to make your payment before a 10% penalty is added to your bill.
The second installment is due and payable on February 1. The grace period on the second installment expires at 5:00 pm on April 10. If the installment remains unpaid as of April 10, a 10% penalty and $10 cost is imposed. If the delinquent dates fall on a weekend or an observed holiday, the delinquent date is the next business day.
First installment delinquent at 5:00 pm December 10. Second installment delinquent at 5:00 pm April 10.

For example, if you purchased property in February 2006, your purchase would affect the 2006/2007 fiscal year taxes (July 2006 through June 2007). The latter fiscal year is affected because the Assessor would have already established the value on January 1, 2006, prior to the purchase/construction. Therefore, the taxes calculated for 2007/2008 would also have to be adjusted by a supplemental bill for the increased value.
First installment penalty = 10% of the first installment amount.
Second installment penalty = 10% of the second installment amount plus $10.
