STATEMENT FROM PLUMAS COUNTY TREASURER AND TAX COLLECTOR, REGARDING COVID-19 AND THE APRIL 10TH PROPERTY TAX DEADLINE
I understand that this is a very stressful time, especially for those suffering direct effects from this public health crisis, and my office is committed to helping in any way we can. We have no authority to extend the April 10th deadline, as outlined by State Law. However, Plumas County property owners affected by the COVID-19 virus may have late penalties cancelled if they are unable to pay their property taxes by the April 10th deadline.
For reasons related to COVID-19 virus, property owners may submit a request for penalty cancellation. Cancellation of penalty forms can be found on the Tax Collector’s webpage or by calling the office at (530) 283-6260.
We encourage all property owners to pay their taxes on time, April 10th. This revenue keeps the government, schools, community college and special districts running and providing vital services that the public relies on, especially in times like these.
Since the Tax Collector’s office is currently closed to the public during this emergency, appointments will have to be made for in-person payments or other assistance. We encourage those who typically pay with cash to obtain a money order or cashier’s check for payment. Taxpayers can pay online, via telephone or by mail. There is also a drop box on the front steps of the Courthouse and by the Tax Collector’s office door. For online credit/debit card transactions, our card payment processor charges a nominal service fee.
