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.
I am honored to be entrusted with the duties of Treasurer-Tax Collector, and committed to preserving the tradition of fiscal conservatism and prudent management of public funds for the benefit of the citizens of Butte County, county departments, schools and special districts. I am personally dedicated to excellence in the performance of all duties and am proud to say that the Treasurer-Tax Collector's Office is well known for its culture of professionalism, teamwork and superior customer service.
Secured Property Taxes
At the close of June 30, 2023, unpaid taxes for the 22-23 fiscal year converted to "defaulted" status on July 1, 2023, and incurred additional penalties and interest. Please review the defaulted tab in the current 23-24 fiscal year for a correct payoff.
Recent Updates to Property Status
The Assessor's Office is continuing to update property tax records to reflect title transfers that occurred. A duplicate billing may be generated once the records are updated.
If you sold, bought, or transferred property recently, you may print a copy of the tax bill online. You may contact the Assessor's Office to validate the time it is taking to change file information. If you received the original tax bill, please forward to the new owner or reach out to the title company.
To update your address, please send an email to the Assessor's Office.
Tax Bill Availability
Secured tax bills for the 2023/24 fiscal year will be released by October 1st and will be available on the website.
