Pursuant to state law, the first installment of property taxes is due November 1, 2017, and will become delinquent if not paid by close of business on December 10th; however, taxpayers have until December 11, 2017, as December 10th falls on a Sunday in 2017. Thereafter, a 10% penalty will be added to first installments not paid by December 11, 2017. The second installment is due February 1, 2018, and will become delinquent if not paid by close of business Tuesday, April 10, 2018; thereafter, a 10% penalty, as well as a $10 cost, will be added. Both installments may be paid when the first installment is due. Payments remaining unpaid after June 30, 2018, accrue additional penalties at the rate of one and one half percent per month (eighteen percent, annually), plus a $15 State of California charge. Mailed payments should be sent to 2976 Richardson Drive, Auburn, CA 95603-2640 and must be United States Postal Service postmarked by the delinquent dates to avoid penalties.
