(Victor Valley)–San Bernardino County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector (ATC) Ensen Mason today encouraged property owners to pay the first installment of their property taxes online from the comfort and safety of their homes by Thursday, December 10, to avoid a 10% penalty. Taxpayers who choose to pay in person are required to wear a mask and have their temperature taken at a contactless temperature kiosk inside the building entrance.
“My department has taken every step possible to safeguard the public during the pandemic,” said Mason. “Even though my offices remain open to serve the public, I strongly encourage taxpayers to submit their payments conveniently and securely online.”
Electronic payments can be made by electronic funds transfer at www.MyTaxCollector.com or by calling (909) 387-8308. Paying by eCheck is completely free and safe. Immediate confirmation is given and taxes are considered paid at that moment.
Taxpayers may also mail payments to SBC Tax Collector at 268 West Hospitality Lane, First Floor, San Bernardino, CA 92415-0360. Mailed payments must be USPS postmarked on or before December 10, 2020, to be considered timely. For information on acceptable postmarks, please visit the “Understanding Postmarks” link at www.MyTaxCollector.com. Taxpayers can also visit the ATC website to look up taxes due, request a duplicate bill, or look up payment history.
