Property Taxes are Due!
If you live in California, the first half of your property taxes are "due" (actually read on about the word "due" ... ) today!
Here's how it works . . .
The property tax fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30.
Tax bills are sent around the last week in October.
The first installment (covering July 1 to December 31) is due November 1, but delinquent after December 10 (but we all generally think they're "due" on December 10).
The second installment (covering January 1 to June 30) is due March 1, but delinquent after April 10.
Don't you love how the timing is here . . . December 10 (around the time you're spending all that money on the holidays) and April 10 (around the time you're writing a check to the government for income tax).
Well, that's the way it is!
