You should receive the annual secured property tax bills by November 1st. If you haven't received it by then, please contact our office immediately at (925) 957-5280.
Failure to receive a tax bill neither relieves the taxpayer of the responsibility to pay the taxes when they become due and payable, nor does it excuse penalties if payment is late. The laws that govern the Tax Collector place the responsibility of obtaining a tax bill and making timely payment upon the property owner. The Tax Collector has no discretion in waiving penalties.
To receive your Secured tax bill electronically, complete the online New User Profile. Be sure to add the parcel numbers to the APN list you wish to have included in the email you will receive each September. In addition to the annual e-mail notification, you will receive a reminder notification prior to the delinquent date of each installment. This will be particularly helpful if you have multiple bills to keep up with and pay. The e-mail notification is free and will link you directly to your online tax bill where you can view/print its details and pay the installments.
