Attention New Owners

Failure to receive a tax bill does not relieve the imposition of penalties. Please call (530) 283-6260 to verify your tax status. New owners may be subject to a supplemental tax billing in addition to the regular, annual bill or a refund dependent upon the new assessed value.


The postmark of the U.S. Postal Service determines the payment date. Lost payments, missing payments, or payments postmarked late will be penalized. For your protection, obtain proof of mailing from your post office.
