The supplemental taxes shown on the tax bill were determined in accordance with Article XIIIA of the California Constitution which generally requires reappraisal of property whenever a change in ownership occurs or property is newly constructed.

If payment is to be made by your lending agency, please forward the bill to them, as the Tax Collector's Office will not provide your lender with a copy of the supplemental tax bill. Sale or transfer of the property does not relieve the assessed owner of responsibility for this tax.

A 10% penalty and a $20.00 cost charge will be added to unpaid second installments at 5 pm on the delinquency date shown.
