Property taxes are due now! Take a moment today and send in your tax payment to avoid being late? Don’t forget!
The second half of Humboldt County Property Taxes must be paid by Wednesday, April 10, 2019 in order to be timely; and mailed payments must be postmarked by this same date.
We urge anyone having questions regarding payment to first look at your tax bill, front and back, or check out the website https://humboldtgov.org/260/Treasurer---Tax-Collector as almost all answers can be found in one of these two places. If you don’t find the answer then call us at 707-476-2450.
Online payments can be made at the website https://humboldtgov.org/260/Treasurer---Tax-Collector; and credit card payments may also be made at the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s office. However, these payments involve processing by private companies so there is a service fee charged by these outside contractors (not by Humboldt County).
You may also make credit card payments over the phone by calling (855) 335-3132….and yes, the same service fees apply.
Late property tax payments result in a 10% penalty and a $20.00 cost. Most postal stations in Humboldt County close by 5:00 p.m. so after that envelopes are postmarked the following day.
There are also secure tax payment boxes just inside the Courthouse (before the security check-points) at both the 4th and 5th Street entrances; but the Courthouse closes at 5:00.
The Tax Collector's Office will be very busy through April 10th. So if you wish to pay in person you will not only need to go through Courthouse security screening but may also have to wait in line once you get to the Tax Collector’s office. Mailing your payment will be less of a hassle.
