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 Division

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.
