FRESNO – Property owners have until Dec. 10 to meet the deadline for their first 2018-19 property tax bill installment, according to Oscar J. Garcia, the Fresno County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer-Tax Collector.
Your property tax bill is considered delinquent if it hasn’t been paid by 5 p.m. Dec. 10. A 10 percent penalty will be added to all payments received in the office after that time or that are postmarked by the United States Postal Service after Dec. 10.
Garcia reminds property owners that failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve taxpayers of the responsibility to make a timely payment.
If you have recently acquired property, verify that the taxes have been paid. Tax information and payments may be obtained by accessing the Fresno County website at www.fresnocountyca.gov or by calling our automated phone system at 600-3482.
Payments made by check should include a tax bill stub and be made payable to: Fresno County Tax Collector. Payments by mail should be sent to the Fresno County Tax-Collector, P.O. Box 1192, Fresno, CA 93715-1192.
Payers are encouraged to pay by mail or use the automated system to avoid parking problems and waiting in line. Fresno County offers a drop box for payments made by check in the lobby in Room 105 of the Hall of Records, 2281 Tulare St., Fresno from Dec. 3 through Dec. 10. A drive-through drop-off service located in the parking lot of the Hall of Records will be available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 10 for payments made by check.
