San Diego County Treasurer and Tax Collector Dan McAllister said his office on Tuesday began sending out more than one million secure property tax bills for 2021-2022.
“These property tax bills are expected to generate $ 7.6 billion – money our local cities and county depend on,” McAllister said. “Public health, public schools and many other essential services are funded by property taxes, so we encourage taxpayers to pay their taxes as soon as possible. “
The 1,006,991 secure tax invoices are available now on sdttc.com for viewing and paying. Homeowners can pay online for free using an electronic check. Taxpayers will also receive an immediate receipt via email for payment confirmation if they use the online payment system.
The first property tax payment is due on November 1 and becomes past due after December 10. The second installment is due February 1 and becomes past due after April 11.
The total amount owed by property taxpayers is $ 300 million more than last year’s total of $ 7.3 billion. Rising house prices and new residential units are contributing to the increase.
“The number of plots in San Diego County increased by 2,183. Most of that increase was due to new condos, but we also saw an increase in the number of single-family homes,” McAllister said.
Homeowners who haven’t received their tax bill by October 31 can find their tax bill information online or call the Treasurer-Collector’s office toll-free at 877-829-4732.
