The Contra Costa Tax Collector’s Office shares the public’s concern about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on residents and businesses, and they are committed to helping in any way possible. While they have no legal authority to extend the April 10 property tax delinquent deadline, they can cancel late-payment charges in some cases.

According to the Tax Collector’s office:

CVCHS Ugly Strong
  • Existing law R&T 4985.2 authorizes us to cancel penalties and interest on a delinquent payment due to circumstances, such as the pandemic that impacts a taxpayer’s ability to make timely payment. Note the penalty cancellation process will require documentation.
  • Nevertheless, those able to pay should do so online, over the phone, through bill pay at one’s own bank, or by mail.  We will honor the U.S. Postal Services’ cancellation postmark as the receiving day for mail-in payments.  The Office cannot accept walk-in payments.
  • For receipt of payment, a copy of your tax bill with the installment’s payment date is available online in View Bill under Account Lookup. We can mail you a copy as well.

For additional information, please refer to their Frequently Asked Questions, visit the website at www.cctax.us, or email the office at taxinfo@tax.cccounty.us.

For the latest updates on the impacts of the COVID-19 on property tax deadlines, please refer to the Statement from Russell V. Watts, Treasurer-Tax Collector.
