When are secured property taxes due?

Current secured tax bill: 

  • 1st installment is due November 1 and is delinquent after December 10 
  • 2nd installment payable by February 1 and delinquent after April 10 
  • Both installments can be paid on or before December 10 

Paying on time will avoid penalties

If your bill says you have prior taxes owing, you should contact the Tax Collector’s Office at (925) 608-9500 to get the current amount due. Please note that these taxes are not included in the total amount due on the Secured bill, and additional penalty on the prior taxes accrues monthly at a rate of 18% per annum.
