INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 AND YOUR PROPERTY TAXES
The Amador County Tax Collector's Office understands and shares the public's anxiety and concern about the impact of the 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. However, this office (and the County of Amador) cannot legally change the April 10 payment deadline for the second installment of the 2019-2020 secured property taxes. State Law establishes the current deadline of Friday, April 10, 2020. Furthermore, critical local government services and schools, as well as local financial obligations, are dependent upon these scheduled tax revenues. It is extremely important that if you have the resources to pay your taxes that you do so timely.
As you may have heard, the Amador County Administration Center has been closed to the public. However, the Tax Collector's Office remains fully staffed and operational. If you need to contact us, please do so by phone or by email.
The Amador County Tax Collector's Office would like to note that property taxes can be paid online, or over the telephone using the website and telephone number shown on the back of your tax bill. Taxes can also be paid through bill pay at your own bank. They may also be paid by check or money order through the mail. Such mailed payments must be properly addressed and postmarked by April 10, 2020 to avoid late penalties and costs. In addition, a payment drop box is located on the outside wall of the alcove to the immediate left of the main entrance to the County Administration Center. Taxpayers are encouraged to NOT make in person payments in cash. Please use a personal check or obtain a cashier's check or money order and mail as noted above. This will help to minimize the health threat to both you and our employees.
Amador County property tax information is available online. To view your tax information, or print a copy of your property tax bill, select "View Property Tax Bill" from the Menu Options on this page.
Our hope is that all of our residents and taxpayers stay safe and healthy during these uncertain times.
CURRENT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
