Treasurer-Tax Collector's Office to Offer Services Online While Closed to the Public


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.

If you have questions please look at your tax bill - front and back - or check out the website because 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.
