San Bernardino County Tax Collector Oscar Valdez is encouraging property owners to pay the second installment of their property taxes by Monday, April 10, to avoid a 10% penalty. The Tax Collector’s Office offers many convenient ways to pay, including online, by phone, by mail, and in person.
“Property taxes fund key public services that enhance the quality of life for County residents,” said Valdez. “I want to encourage property owners to do what they can to pay their property taxes by the April 10 deadline to avoid costly penalties as a result of late payments.” Taxpayers can take advantage of our online payment option at www.MyTaxCollector.com, making it easy, secure, and Simply A Better Way To Do Business®.
Electronic payments are accepted online at www.MyTaxCollector.com, and by phone at (909) 387-8308, or (760) 241-8829, and can be made using a checking or savings account free of charge. Credit card payments are also accepted; however, they include a convenience fee charged by a third-party processing vendor.
