To begin an Annual Payment Plan you must:
- Make an initial payment of at least 20 percent (20%) of the redemption* amount.
- Pay a one-time set-up fee of $64.00.
- Pay your current year taxes as indicated below.
*The redemption amount is the total prior year taxes, fees and penalties due.
If you begin an annual payment plan between July 1st and the following April 10th, any current year or supplemental taxes that are due must first be paid. To maintain the plan, any remaining current year taxes must be paid by April 10th. Failure to pay by this date will default the plan. To begin an annual payment plan between April 11th and June 30th, the current year taxes and any supplemental taxes which become delinquent during the current fiscal year, plus any applicable penalties and costs, must first be paid in full.
A properly maintained Annual Payment Plan will protect the parcel from the County Tax Collector's Power to Sell, even after the fifth year of tax default.
Please call the Tax Collector at (805) 781-5836 for information on getting started.
