RIVERSIDE – Riverside County homeowners have until Monday to pay the first installment on their property tax bills, after which any unpaid amounts will accrue penalties.
“It is important for all property owners to ensure they meet the deadlines to avoid any unnecessary penalties,” Treasurer-Tax Collector Matt Jennings said.
The Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office this summer sent out notices seeking payments on over 900,000 secured properties, including parcels, houses and condominiums, for the 2023-24 tax year.
The grace period to pay the first installment will end on Dec. 11. Any payments received after that date will be considered delinquent and may incur a 10% late fee, according to county officials.
Property owners can make a payment anytime online via www.riversidetaxinfo.com.
Residents can also make payments in person, without an appointment, at the tax collector’s main office at 4080 Lemon St., Riverside, in the Palm Desert satellite office at 38-686 El Cerrito Road, and at the Temecula branch, 40935 County Center Drive.
Credit and debit card payments are accepted online, or by calling 951- 955-3900. Credit card transactions include a 2% “convenience fee.”
Checks are always welcome. However, officials said if they’re mailed, the envelopes must be postmarked on or before Dec. 11, or they’ll be considered overdue.
Officials said residents who don’t pay their taxes risk having a lien placed on their property.
The second and final property tax installment will be due in April.
