If you own property in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, or Monterey County, today (December 10th, 2018) is the deadline to pay your first installment. If you do not pay by 5:00 PM PST, a 10% penalty will be added to your bill.

Note: if you intend to pay your Property Tax by mail in the counties list above, the envelope in which you send the payment must be post-marked with today’s date to avoid late-payment penalties. Be cautioned that the USPS only postmarks certain mail depending on the type of postage used, and may not postmark mail on the same day deposited by a taxpayer.
