Treasurer-Tax Collector
The Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Department operates three divisions - Treasury, Property Tax, and Central Collections. While the activities of each division are unique, the primary purpose of the department as a whole is the collection and cash management of revenue owed to the County, cities, special districts, school districts, and the court system. The department is committed to providing excellent customer service and assuring effective utilization of the public’s tax dollars through a program of performance measurement and management.

First, let me express our deep sympathy and support for you and your loved ones during this very difficult time.  We will do everything we can to help you through the challenges you are facing.

Current tax bill information:

If you have lost your home or employment due to the Camp Fire, and you pay your taxes directly (no impound account), please be assured that there will be no penalties imposed for payments due on December 10 that are paid after that date.  The Assessor will be re-assessing damaged properties as quickly as possible, and new tax bills will be issued, with new due dates.  This will adjust property values from Nov. 8 through June 30, 2019.  Please file a calamity claim to get the process started. The form and other information about the property reassessment process can be found here: http://www.buttecounty.net/assessor.

If you have already sent in your tax payment and do not want the check processed, we may be able to help.  We are currently holding those payments.  First, contact your bank to see if your check is still outstanding (not paid against your account).  If it has not been paid, you may call 552-3720 or email taxes@buttecounty.net to advise us not to process your payment and make arrangements regarding the  check.

Sincerely,

Peggy Moak

Butte County Treasurer-Tax Collector


The  Property Tax Division is responsible for billing and collecting taxes assessed on real and personal property in Butte County (land, structures, manufactured homes, boats, airplanes, and businesses). After the Assessor has valued the property, and the Auditor has added direct charges and special assessments to each account, the Tax Division mails the bills and collects the payments. The division bills upwards of 110,000 property owners each year and processes nearly $220 million in tax payments. Approximately 22 percent of the property tax revenue collected is retained by the County to provide programs and services to the public. The rest is distributed to the other local entities that share property tax revenue - schools, redevelopment agencies, cities, and special districts.
