BUTTE COUNTY TREASURER-TAX COLLECTOR ADDRESSES CONFUSION OVER TAX DEADLINES

 

Oroville, Calif.-- With the recent extensions of the Federal and State income tax deadlines, we have received many questions surrounding local property tax deadlines. Local County Tax Collectors do not have authority to change the deadline for the second installment of property taxes, due to the delinquency date of April 10, 2020 being established by State law. Local property tax revenues support many essential public services, such as emergency response, public health, and schools.

 

In an effort to protect the health and safety of our community, as well as our employees, the Butte County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s office is currently closed to the public. We will continue to have staff available to answer calls, e-mails and process mail delivery payments. Please check www.buttecounty.net/treasurertaxcollector for current hours of operation.

 

Property tax payments can be made online, by phone, or by mail with a timely postmark of April 10, 2020. To pay online, please visit www.buttecounty.net/treasurertaxcollector. To pay by phone, please call 844-882-3391. A convenient drop box is available outside our office at 25 County Center Drive, Suite #125 Oroville, CA 95965 until 5pm on April I0, 2020.

 

For those who are directly impacted, either physically or financially, and are unable to pay timely, there will be a penalty waiver process offered after the April 10, 2020 deadline. The penalty waiver process will require documentation of how you were impacted by the COVID 19 virus, making the timely payment of taxes not possible; for example: reduced hours, lay-offs, business closure, hospitalization, etc.

 

We understand the impact that COVID -19 is having on the economy, our community, as well as our families. We will do our best to work with those severely impacted, either physically or economically, by this crisis and who are unable to pay timely. Please stay safe and healthy and know that we are all in this together.
