Payment of Taxes
Payment by Mail: Make payments by mail or at the County Tax Office.
Return the appropriate stub or stubs with your payment in the return
envelopes provided. Checks and money orders should be made payable to
Siskiyou County Tax Collector, and show the mailing
address of the payer and also the parcel number as shown on the bill.
Any check returned unpaid by the bank will not be redeposited. Also,
there will be a $35.00 fee for each check returned unpaid by the bank
for any reason. If a check is returned unpaid, the Tax Collector must
collect penalties required by State Law. (When December 10 or
April 10 Falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday, the hour of
deliquency is 5:00 P.M. on the Next Business Day.)Please note: A reminder will not be sent out for the second
Overnight Drop Box: Located in front of the courthouse steps at 311
Fourth St., Yreka, CA.
Payment of Taxes on Assessment Appeals: If you have submitted an
assessment appeal application to the Clerk of the Board, you must
continue to pay your property taxes by the designated due dates.
Penalties: If your
first installment amount is unpaid after December 10, a 10% penalty
is added to the first installment amount due. If your second
installment amount is unpaid after April 10, a 10% penalty plus a
$20.00 cost fee is added to the second installment amount due.
After June 30, a $15.00 redemption fee and penalty in the
amount of 1-1/2% per month will be added to the unpaid taxes and
penalties listed on the bill.
Responsibility of the Property
Owner: The property owner must ensure that the taxes
are paid by the due dates specified. Failure
to receive a tax bill does not relieve the taxpayer from the
responsibility to pay taxes owed, nor does it give the Tax Collector
reason to cancel penalties imposed. If you own other property, be sure to obtain a
separate bill for each parcel.
Change of Address: You must maintain a current mailing address for each
parcel that you own. If you have moved, or if the mailing address shown
on the face of your tax bill is incorrect, please notify the Siskiyou
County Assessor at the County Courthouse, Room 108, 311 Fourth Street,
Yreka, CA 96097.
Identification of Property:The best identification of the property is the parcel number.
Check parcel number and property location (SITUS) to be sure this is
the correct property. The law
does not permit the Tax Collector to authorize refunds for payments made
on the wrong property except under certain specified conditions.
If you have sold this property, please forward your bill
to the new owner or return it to this office with the new owner's
