The Los Angeles County treasurer and tax collector is in the process of mailing approximately 105,00 statements of prior-year taxes with special notices to property owners. These notices provide important information regarding requests and describes special installment plans, partial payment options, military active duty exemptions and more.
Property owners who were unable to pay their property taxes on time for reasons related to COVID-19 may submit a Penalty Cancellation Request online at ttc.lactounty.gov. Unpaid secured property taxes are subject to penalties.
If residential or agricultural property remains tax defaulted for more than five years and commercial property or unimproved vacant residential lots remain tax defaulted for more than three years, the county will offer the property for sale at a public auction in accordance with state law.
“As a result of this mailing, property owners may find it difficult to reach us on the telephone,” said Treasurer and Tax Collector Keith Knox. “They may obtain answers to the great majority of their questions, including how to request a copy of a property tax bill, obtain the amount due on any parcel, or find the tax payment history for the past three fiscal tax years from the Los Angeles County Property Tax Portal at propertytax.lacounty.gov.”
Property owners may also call (888) 807-2111 for automated information, 24 hours a day. To subscribe to property tax related emails, visit ttc.lacounty.gov/eNotify.
