07 Oct San Diego real estate property tax bills in the mail
San Diego County property owners can expect a nice little ‘surprise’ in the mail soon: Property tax bills for nearly 1 million residents who own real estate in San Diego County should be on their way to a mailbox near you, if they haven’t arrived already.
Property tax bills were mailed to residents in San Diego County at the end of September. According to county figures, 986,858 residents received tax notices — 2,269 more residents than last year. The county is expected to generate $5.368 billion, up from $5.073 billion last year, from property taxes.
This year’s average tax bill is $5,450.09 and comes as real estate in San Diego surges, reflecting higher San Diego real estate values, new home construction and more commercial real estate development in the county. Payment is due Nov. 1 and a tax penalty will be assessed on unpaid balances after Dec. 10. County officials said they have a 99.2 percent collection rate.
Taxes can be paid online at www.sdtreastax.com, in person at five county offices or by phone at (855) 829-3773.
