Treasurer / Tax Collector
Due to the current Covid-19 recommendations, we encourage property owners to pay property taxes via the drop box or mail rather than in person.
Secured Property Taxes Due April 10, 2020
We understand and share the public’s anxiety and concern about the impacts of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. However, Colusa County has no statutory authority to change the April 10 due date for the Second Installment of Property Taxes. These revenues provide funding for critical public services, such as emergency response, public health, schools and other local financial obligations.
Our office hours for property tax payments are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm should you wish to make your property tax payment(s) in person. Please enter the Historic Courthouse via the North (main) entrance.
Payments made by check, cashier’s check or money order can be dropped in the drop box located at the front entrance of the Historic Court House or mailed to 547 Market St, Suite 111, Colusa, CA 95932.
Hours of operation will remain in effect until further notice.
*** The 2nd installments for Current Secured Property Taxes were Due February 1st, 2020, delinquent after April 10th, 2020.
The office of the Treasurer-Tax Collector operates three divisions which include Treasury, Tax Collection and Public Administration. The department is responsible for investing, safeguarding and disbursing money for the County and related agencies.
The Tax Collector collects taxes and is governed by California state law. The Tax collector is responsible for the billing and collection of all property taxes. The Tax collector does not determine the amount of taxes that are billed or the billing address. Assessed values, ownership status and mailing addresses are controlled by the Assessor, bond rates and tax distribution are managed by the Auditor, and direct charges are determined by their respective Districts.
The County Treasury is responsible for the receipt, custody and investment of all monies placed in the County Treasury. The Treasury oversees banking operations and the county investment pool. While the Treasurer seeks the highest possible return on all investments, the primary objective of the Treasurer is to ensure the security of investment and maintain sufficient liquidity to meet the financial needs of the County at all times. In addition, the Treasury manages Colusa County Business Licenses.
The Public Administrator oversees the administration of estates of deceased persons who were residents of Colusa County and have no qualified person willing or able to administer. The powers of the Public Administrator are mandated by the Probate Code of the State of California.
