To avoid a penalty, property taxes must be paid by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 10, 2015, after which a 10 percent penalty and $10.00 cost must be added. Envelopes must be postmarked no later than April 10, 2015 if taxes are paid by mail. It is suggested that payments be mailed a few days before the April 10 deadline to ensure that the envelope will have the proper postmark. The only acceptable postmark for deadline payments is a U.S. Postal Service postmark.
Current law does not relieve property owners of payment responsibility or the imposition of penalties because of failure to receive a tax bill.
Taxpayers now have the option of paying property taxes by credit card (plus a 2.5 percent convenience fee) or electronic check (no charge). These payments can be made via www.yolocounty.org (select Property Tax button) or by phone at (866) 895-5027. Payments made using either of these two systems must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on April 10, 2015 to avoid penalties.
