Exactly When Are Santa Clara County, Calif. Property Taxes Due?

In California, property taxes are paid in two installments each year. In many people’s opinion, the drop-dead due date fall during the two worst times of the year-right before the Christmas and Hanukkah holidays, and just prior to the income tax payment deadline.

The first installment is due on November 1, and is considered late if not received in the office of the tax collector by 5:00 pm on December 10.
The second installment is due on February 1 and is considered late if not received in the tax collector’s office by 5:00 on April 10.
