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 to collect 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.
Property Tax Distribution

During the 2014-15 fiscal year, Butte County billed approximately $203 million in secured property taxes, which represents the 1% tax on the assessed value of property, plus voter approved school bonds and special direct assessments. The taxes collected are distributed among several local agencies that share this source of revenue. Schools receive the largest percentage of property taxes followed by the County, redevelopment agencies (RDAs), cities and special districts. The pie chart below illustrates the approximate percentage of property taxes distributed per agency.
