No Changes To Property Tax Payments Due To Covid-19:
As Mendocino County Tax Collector, I understand and share in the public's anxiety and concern about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
So the pubic is aware, County Tax Collectors cannot change the April 10 deadline for the second Installment of secured property taxes because the delinquency date of Friday, April 10, 2020 is established by State law. Furthermore, critical County services, such as emergency response, public health, schools and other local financial obligations are dependent on these scheduled revenues.
However, the County does have authority to waive penalties, costs, or other charges resulting from tax delinquency due to reasonable cause and circumstances related to this crisis. To obtain the Request for Penalty Cancellation form please visit https://www.mendocinocounty.org/ttcforms. Please read the instructions for this process carefully.
Due to this crisis, the County Administration Building is closed to the public. All taxes, assessments, penalties, fines or fees must be remitted as follows:
- Mailed through the US Postal Service;
- Electronically online or by phone (see below for more information); or
- Drop box in front of the County Administration Building.
Cash must be converted to money orders or cashiers checks.
Full staffing will be available by telephone to deal with urgent matters.
Additional information will be provided as it becomes available. Thank you in advance for your cooperation during this crisis!
