Annual bills for Sacramento County unsecured property taxes for fiscal year 2017-2018 will be mailed in mid-July and are payable without delinquent penalties through August, 31, 2017.
Unsecured property tax bills are mailed to all owners of unsecured property in July of each year. If you owned unsecured property in Sacramento County, such as a boat or aircraft, or if you leased or owned fixtures and equipment related to a business on January 1, 2017, and do not receive a tax bill by August 15, 2017, please contact the Sacramento County Tax Collector’s Unsecured Property Tax Unit at (916) 874-7833, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).
NONRECEIPT OF A TAX BILL DOES NOT EXCUSE DELINQUENCY OR ALLOW THE TAX COLLECTOR TO CANCEL PENALTIES OR COLLECTION COSTS.
Tax bills become delinquent if not paid in the Tax Collector’s Office by 5 p.m. on Aug. 31, 2017, or received by mail bearing a postmark of August 31, 2017.
If the tax bill is not paid by the delinquency date, a 10% penalty and collection cost will be added. DMV registration may be withheld on boats if unsecured property taxes are reported delinquent. If a tax bill remains unpaid after October 31, 2017, additional collection costs and monthly penalties at the rate of 1.5% will be added to the base tax.
Payments may be made by mail or in person at the County Tax Collector’s Office located at 700 “H” Street, Room 1710, Sacramento, CA 95814, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (holidays excluded).
