The Assessor establishes the value of the property on January 1. This date is referred to as the Tax Lien date. The secured property tax bill, issued each September, uses the value established on the tax lien date.

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.

You may receive more than one supplemental tax bill, depending on when you purchased your property or completed new construction. Since the secured property taxes are based on the January 1 value and cover a fiscal year, your purchase/construction date may affect the calculation of the taxes for two fiscal years. For example, if you purchased property in February 2019, your purchase would affect the 2018/2019 fiscal year taxes (July 2018 through June 2019). The latter fiscal year is affected because the Assessor would have already established the value on January 1, 2018, prior to the purchase/construction. Therefore, the taxes calculated for 2019/2020 would also have to be adjusted by a supplemental bill for the increased value.
Yes. If your payment is not received or postmarked by the delinquent dates, penalty amounts are the same as the secured taxes: First installment penalty = 10% of the first installment amount. Second installment penalty = 10% of the second installment amount plus $20.
