Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation the Treasurer-Tax Collectors Office is now closed to the public. Taxpayers must pay their property taxes by mail, automated phone system (855-335-3132), or online at the county’s website.
Note: Online payments involve processing by private companies so there is a service fee charged by these outside contractors (not by the County) for credit cards (Fee: 2.38% of payment) & debit cards ($ 4.95 flat fee) … but e-checks are free!
There is also a secure tax payment box just inside the Courthouse (before the security check-point) at the 4th Street entrance in which payments may be dropped; but the Courthouse closes at 5:00.
- The second installment of property taxes is due no later than Friday, April 10, 2020 … mailed payments must be postmarked by this same date!
- 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.
- Property taxes are due now! Take a moment today and send in your tax payment. Don’t forget!
- There will not be a due date extension for the 2nd installment of property taxes, but due consideration may be granted for those paying late due to circumstances beyond their control.
