The Yolo County Tax Collector’s Office reminds taxpayers who own property in Yolo County that the second installment of 2015-16 Secured Property Tax, due February 1, 2016, will be delinquent if not paid by April 11, 2016.
To avoid a penalty, property taxes must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 11, 2016, after which a 10 percent penalty and $10.00 cost must be added. Envelopes must be postmarked no later than April 11, 2016 if taxes are paid by mail. It is suggested that payments be mailed a few days before the April 11 deadline to ensure the envelope will have the proper postmark. The only acceptable postmark for deadline payments is a U.S. Postal Service postmark.
Current law does not relieve property owners of payment responsibility or the imposition of penalties because of failure to receive a tax bill.
