Have you received your 2022-23 Annual Secured Property Tax Bill?
If you live in the County of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Treasurer and Tax Collector will mail the 2022-23 Annual Secured Property Tax Bills on or before Tuesday, November 1, 2022, to all property owners at the addresses shown on the tax roll.
The County collects property taxes, but they are governed by California state law. Secured (real) property taxes are an ad-valorem (value-based) property tax that is the liability of the person or entity assessed for the tax.
There are several types of secured property tax assessments in addition to the annual property tax, including: supplemental, corrected, additional, and escaped, and pro-rated taxes on real property that has changed ownership before issuance of the tax bill.
What is an Annual Secured Tax Bill?
All real property is assessed annually, based on each property's status as of that year's lien date, January 1 of the current year. The annual tax bill covers the fiscal year, which begins July 1st and ends June 30th of the next year.
Annual secured property tax bills are mailed only once each year by November 1st. Please remember that annual property taxes are due and delinquent on the same dates yearly. You may pay the total tax as shown on the tax bill without penalty on or before December 10 or pay in two equal installments. If you elect to pay in two installments, the first installment must be paid on or before December 10 to avoid penalties, and the second installment must be paid on or before April 10 to avoid penalties. Please Note: A Reminder Notice or Bill will Not Be Sent Out for the Second Installment Payment.
Information copies of annual secured property tax bills are mailed simultaneously to property owners and their mortgage company. Mortgage companies typically pay in two installments.
Please wait until after November 1st before you contact Los Angeles County Treasurer and Tax Collector regarding a bill you have not received. After November 1st, please call the Treasurer and Tax Collector’s Bill Request Line at 1(213) 893-1103 or click the “Request a Secured Property Tax Bill” link to request a Substitute Secured Property Tax Bill.
