Treasurer-collector mails out over a million property tax bills

The first installment of property tax is due November 1

SAN DIEGO — Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister announced his office began mailing more than one million secure 2022-2023 property tax bills on Oct. 3.

“Property taxes fund essential county and city services,” McAllister said. “Public health, public schools and many other essential services are funded by these taxes, so we encourage taxpayers to pay their taxes as soon as possible. This year, we expect to generate $8.06 billion in property taxes.

The 1,011,364 secure tax invoices are available now on to view and pay. Owners can pay online for free using an e-cheque (electronic check). Taxpayers will also receive an immediate email receipt for payment confirmation if they use the online payment system at

The first installment of property tax is due November 1 and becomes overdue after December 10. The second installment is due February 1, 2023 and becomes past due after April 11, 2023.

The total amount owed by property taxpayers is $500 million higher than last year’s total of $7.56 billion. Rising house prices and new residential units are contributing to the increase.

Homeowners who have not received their tax bill by October 31 can find their tax bill information online or call the Office of the Treasurer-Tax Collector toll-free at 877-829-4732.

Property taxes fund schools, libraries, and other services provided by local cities and the county. Go to to see how taxes are broken down.
