Notice of Current Property Taxes Due
The Imperial County Treasurer-Tax Collector, hereby announces that statute requires that the regular secured tax bills must be mailed on or before November 1, 2017 to all property owners, at the addresses shown on the tax roll. The 2017-2018 Secured bills were mailed August 22, 2017. If you own property in Imperial County, the county listed in this notice, and have not received a tax bill, contact the Tax Collector's office at: 940 W. Main Street, Room 106, El Centro, CA 92243-2864, by phone (442) 265-1270, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer of the responsibility to make timely payments.
The FIRST INSTALLMENT of 2017-2018 taxes are due and payable on November 1, 2017 and will become delinquent if not paid by 5 p.m., or the close of business, whichever is later, on December 11, 2017; thereafter a 10% penalty will be added. The SECOND INSTALLMENT is due on February 1, 2018 and will become delinquent if not paid by 5 p.m., or the close of business, whichever is later, on April 10, 2018; thereafter a 10% penalty will be added plus the cost to prepare the delinquent tax records and to give notice of delinquency. BOTH INSTALLMENTS MAY BE PAID when the first installment is due.
Payments may be made by electronic funds transfer or by mail sent to Imperial County Treasurer-Tax Collector, County Administration Center, 940 W. Main Street, Room 106, El Centro, CA 92243-2864.
Payments may also be made in person at the Tax Collector's office, 940 W. Main Street, Room 106, El Centro, CA 92243-2864, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday, holidays excepted. You may also pay current year taxes electronically or by phone through a 3rd party vendor. More information is available via the link below.
Mailed payments must be postmarked on or before the delinquent date to avoid delinquent penalties. On payments sent through the United States Postal Service, timely mailing is determined by the U.S.P.S postal cancellation mark placed upon the envelope. Check with your postal service to determine postmark deadlines in your area or have your envelope "hand cancelled" at your local post office to insure proof of timely mailing. Postage meter dates are not proof of timely mailing and are not accepted as a postal postmark. Visit our website for more information regarding various types of postage that do not receive a qualifying postal postmark and will not constitute proof of timely mailing.
