Tax Collector: More Than Half of SD County Property Owners Still Owe

The second installment of property taxes are due April 10.

Carlsbad residents are being reminded that the second installment of property taxes is due April 10.

More than half of the region's landowners haven't paid the second installment of their property taxes, county Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister said Tuesday.

So far, 46 percent of county taxpayers have ponied up for their property tax bills, he said.

McAllister said he expects the more than 980,000 2012-13 property tax bills to generate $4.56 billion in revenue.

Around 529,000 installments haven't been paid, amounting to about $1.44 billion, he said.     

"Our branch offices are all ready to serve our taxpayers," McAllister said. "As a reminder, we will accept checks and money orders at all offices. Downtown San Diego is the only office that will accept cash."

In-person payments can be made at county offices at the County Administration Centers at the following locations:

  • 141 E. Carmel St., San Marcos
  • 200 S. Magnolia Ave., El Cajon
  • 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 162
  • 590 Third Ave., Chula Vista
  • 9225 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., Kearny Mesa

Why would anyone who doesn't have to pay before April 10th pay before April 10th?

Agreed! Why is this even considered newsworthy? Government takes too much money from me as it is, and I'm always going to wait until the last day before I have to legally "pony up" my property taxes!

This number is most likely counting impounded tax monies that have not yet been forwarded by the mortgage holding banks, but will be posted by April 10th.
