Property taxes due for fiscal year 2011-12
Submitted By Guy Ashley
More than 425,000 secured roll property tax bills for Fiscal Year 2011-2012 amounting to $2.68 billion were mailed in October 2011 by Alameda County Treasurer and Tax Collector Donald R. White to all real property owners of record in the Alameda County Assessor's Office.
The secured roll taxes due are payable by two installments. The first is due on November 1, 2011 and is delinquent at 5 p.m. on December 12, 2011, after which a 10 percent delinquent penalty attaches. The second is due on February 1, 2012 and is delinquent at 5 p.m. on April 10, 2012, after which a 10 percent delinquent penalty and $10 cost attaches. The entire bill may be paid when the first installment is due.
There are several payment options:
By mail or in person at the County Tax Collector's Office, 1221 Oak Street, Oakland, CA 94612, between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, holidays excepted.
By credit card, available 24 hours a day by telephone at (510) 272-6800, or online at www.acgov.org.
By Echeck, available 24 hours a day online at www.acgov.org.
By KIOSK, located in the Tax Collector's lobby area allowing taxpayers who visit the office to make payments via credit card and/or Echeck.
Payment by mail, telephone or online is recommended to avoid delay at the cashier's window.
Real property owners who do not receive their tax bill by November 16, 2011, should contact the Tax Collector's Office by calling (510) 272-6800, writing to the office or downloading an internet copy at www.acgov.org.
Tax bills received for property no longer owned should be forwarded to the new owner or returned to the Tax Collector's Office.
Supplemental tax bills are an additional tax liability due to a reassessment of a property's value and are due on the date the bill is mailed to the property owner. Please check the supplemental delinquent dates to ensure payment of the taxes in a timely manner.
