22/23 SECURED PROPERTY TAX BILLS
The Colusa County Tax Collector will mail secured property tax bills in Mid-October which are payable beginning November 1, 2022. These tax bills are mailed only once a year, however, property owners may pay their bills in two installments:
- The first installment payment is due on November 1, 2022. Payments will be accepted without penalty until 5 p.m. on December 12, 2022.
- The second installment payment is due on February 1, 2023. Payments will be accepted without penalty until 5 p.m. on April 10, 2023.
- Both installments may be paid when the first installment is due. A reminder notice will not be mailed for the second installment.
- Payments can be made online via credit/debit card or electronic check. Taxpayers may also pay by credit card or electronic check over the telephone at (844) 905-3241. There is a convenience fee for credit/debit cards and e-checks.
- Payment can be made in person at the Colusa County Tax Collector’s Office at 547 Market St, Suite #111, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. In person payments can be paid via cash, check, credit card, debit card or money order. A convenience fee will apply for credit card and debit card transactions.
- Payments can be sent via mail to 547 Market St, Suite 111, Colusa, CA 95932. The Tax Collector accepts and processes payments based on the postmark date. Payments may not be credited to the tax bill for several business days dependent upon the volume of payments received, whether payments were submitted with the correct payment stubs, and/or whether envelopes were postmarked by the delinquent date. Please include payment stubs or a list of assessments to be paid.
If you own property and do not receive a tax bill by November 1st, 2022 you may obtain tax bill copies, property tax information, and payment stubs (coupons) at the Tax Collector’s website at www.countyofcolusa.org/184/Treasurer-Tax Collector.
R&TC 2610.5 “Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the property owner of the liability to pay taxes in a timely manner or give the Tax Collector reason to cancel penalties imposed for late payment.”
Even if your tax bill is being paid by a lending institution (mortgage company), state law requires that a copy of the tax bill be sent to the property owner; all property owners should receive either the original tax bill or an “Owner’s Information Copy.” It is the responsibility of the property owner to keep their mailing address current with the Assessor’s Office. To update your mailing address, please contact the Assessor’s Office in writing at 547 Market St, Suite #101 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure you include a parcel number and phone number with all correspondence.
