Right now people all over the Bay Area are losing income. As we are right in the middle of tax season, the timing of the COVID-19 outbreak is particularly unlucky.
As a result, to help cash-strapped homeowners, San Francisco and San Mateo counties have recently announced that their deadlines for residential property taxes have been delayed to Monday, May 4th; that is to say, the first business day after current shelter-in-place orders will be lifted.
However, if you are able, we encourage you to pay your property taxes promptly, as each county depends on tax revenue to deliver vital services that are much needed at this moment.
Here are the current property tax deadlines for all nine Bay Area counties, with links to the website of each county’s Treasurer/Tax Collector:
On the other hand, if you are unable to pay your property taxes by the local deadline, you can refer to the website of your county’s Treasurer/Tax Collector linked above to see your options.
We will keep our clients informed as we hear more. Meanwhile, please let us know if you have any questions!
