The California State Association of Counties (CSAC) and the California Association of County Treasurers and Tax Collectors (CACTTC) have issued a joint statement regarding the effect of COVID-19 on the April 10 property tax deadline. (News Release, California State Association of Counties (April 4, 2020))
According to the statement, counties will use all existing authority to cancel penalties and other charges on a case-by-case basis for homeowners, small businesses, and other property owners that are unable to pay their property taxes due to circumstances caused by COVID-19.
Property owners who can pay or that have not been directly affected by COVID‐19, including international corporations and out‐of‐state landlords, still need to pay on time to keep critical government services running.
