Payment methods listed online at lacountypropertytax.com

Annual real estate property tax bills are mailed in October and may include personal property taxes. The first installment is due Nov. 1 and becomes delinquent if payment is not received by 5 p.m. or United States Postal Service postmarked by Dec. 10. The second installment is due Feb. 1 and becomes delinquent if payment is not received by 5 p.m. or postmarked by April 10. Payments for current year taxes can be made online using eCheck. This payment option is free of charge. For more information, go to lacountypropertytax.com. Taxpayers may also use MasterCard, VISA, or American Express to pay property taxes by telephone. To use this service, call (888) 473-0835. A service fee will be charged by the third party vendor to utilize this service and a processing fee will be charged for any credit/debit card payment that is dishonored or reversed for any reason.

Through its third party notification program, the Tax Collector lets taxpayers choose a person or an agency to receive a copy of any notice that is sent regarding taxes that are in default. While the third parties are not responsible for paying the bill, they can remind the property owners to pay the defaulted taxes or to take action to prevent them from losing their property in a tax auction. Senior citizens, those with language limitations, and others who require special assistance are among those who may benefit from this program.

Non-residential-commercial properties with three years or more in default (arrears) become subject to sale at public auction. Residential or agricultural property with five or more years in default become subject to sale at a public auction. If the property has defaulted taxes, a notation will be printed on the annual tax bill in the pink box. Non-residential-commercial properties with less than three years in default and residential or agricultural property with less than five years in default may be eligible for a payment plan. Persons receiving such a notation on their tax bills should contact the Tax Collector immediately.

On Feb. 20, 2009, the state suspended the Senior Citizens’ Property Tax Deferral Program. For more current information on the program, please visit the State Controller’s website at soc.ca.gov or call (800) 952-5661. Additionally, the Property Tax Assistance for Senior Citizens, Blind, or Disabled Persons, Homeowner and Renter Assistance Program (HRA) was also suspended. For the most current information on this program, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for HRA. These programs were administered by the State of California.
