You’re trying to juggle all the moving parts in your life, and suddenly you realize that your property tax bill has been sitting in a pile in the office for the past several weeks. Yikes.
Because the second installment of San Francisco property taxes is due by 5PM on April 10th. If the city doesn’t receive your payment by then, you’ll be considered delinquent.
You can pay your property taxes online, but keep in mind there’s a 2.25% fee. So if you cut that check this week and postmark it by midnight on April 10th, you’ll be safe.
If you’re a new homeowner, you should be aware that there’s no foolin’ around when it comes to property taxes. If left unpaid, they quickly become a lien on your home.
