Van Maddox, Sierra County Treasurer-Tax Collector reminds miners, boat owners and others with unsecured taxable property that the unsecured tax bills for 2020-21 must be paid by August 31. “Avoid the 10% penalty that attaches if the payment is not received timely.” California does not have a grace period but August 31 postmarks are accepted.
Unsecured property taxes are assessed on mining claims, equipment, boats, airplanes, structures on public lands such as summer homes, and other types of personal property and possessory interests. The bills are mailed in July and are due in one installment on August 31 each year.
Please contact the Tax Collector’s Office at 289-3286 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need more information.
