Property Taxes Come Due in December

Many new home or property owners may not realize that their tax bills for the new property have not arrived or been sent to the bank that is covering tax payments. As a result penalties may be assessed beginning in December. Nevada County Treasurer & Tax Collector, Tina Vernon, says the county is getting a lot of returned tax bills because they are sent to the incorrect owner.

Vernon says property owners need to re-check escrow papers and title reports to determine if any portion of the annual taxes were paid by the previous owner before the close of escrow.

If there are any remaining unpaid taxes, and if you did not receive an annual tax bill from either the previous owner or the Tax Collector, you should contact the Tax Collector immediately.

State law stipulates that failure to receive a bill does not permit the Tax Collector to excuse penalties on late payments.
