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% 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.
