We understand and share the public’s anxiety and concern about the impacts of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. While we cannot change the April 10 deadline for the Second Installment of Property Taxes because critical county services, school and local financial obligations are dependent on those scheduled revenues, we can waive penalties, costs or other charges resulting from tax delinquency due to reasonable cause and circumstances related to this crisis.
Tax Collectors have the authority to handle specific scenarios where a taxpayer cannot physically pay their taxes on April 10 due to quarantine, illness or closure of the Tax Collector’s office as a result of COVID-19. In such cases, the Tax Collector will utilize their authority pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code (RTC) 4985.2. to waive interest or penalties that would otherwise be imposed or collected with respect to a delinquent second installment of property taxes levied for the 2019-2020 fiscal year on residential real property. "

My comment is that with just about every school shut down the state's cost won't be as high as before the virus.
Your point is understood... Everyones' opinion here seems valid to me. Problem is --- CA govt doesn't care. And we don't have a Federal govt. right now... not a valid one anyway. Arguing over these small points isn't getting us anywhere. I think the number one key issue for us in California, beside stopping those federal thugs wearing fake military garb from coming in - is stopping the politicos that want to unravel property tax relief, as in Prop 13 and Proposition 58, and 193... Is stopping the so-called Proposition 15, which as we all know is designed to kill commercial and industrial property tax breaks from Prop 13!!
If this occurs, landlords and commercial property owners will raise the rent on business and commercial tenants in California, therefore all of our good and services from companies that rent their store or facility from commercial property owners - will increase their prices so they can stay in business and make a profit! Not only that - it'll open the door for the same critics of Prop 13 to try to move in all the way to destroy Prop 13 altogether. Already struggling with unbelievably high unemployment numbers, caused by Coronavirus plus some of the highest gas, income, and sales taxes in the country, California can't handle another tax hike, property tax or whatever!
The California Legislature just passed some highly unpopular policies that have residents paying 48% more for electricity than the rest of the country! So adding a new property tax on top of these existing costs will only make matter that much worse for Californians, as courageous as they are! With California running high Coronavirus infection numbers, thanks to irresponsible young folks here, and lack of any sane Federal leadership, carier unemployment numbers… they would do well not to pile on more expenses, for example adding the Proposition 15 property tax to the mix. Even if it is supposedly only affecting commercial property owners, and landlords… this spiders out and impacts all Californians at the end of the day. And if you read up on CA state government sites like the California State Board of Equalization, at https://www.boe.ca.gov or talk to Californians, or look at blogs like https://propertytaxtransfertrusts.com or Prop 13 & Prop 58 info-sites like https://cloanc.com/category/prop-58 you see very quickly we're all scared that if the critics of Proposition 13 are allowed to open the door to unraveling tax breaks for commercial property owners… what is to stop them from going after home owners’ ability to take advantage of property tax transfer benefits, or the transfer of parents property taxes upon inheriting property taxes in general. The anxiety running through the state concerns fear that critics of 1978 Proposition 13 now pushing Proposition 15 (formerly "Split-Roll tax” if you recall) will feel free to go after the right for consumers to avoid property tax reassessment, as well as parent to child transfer, or parent to child exclusion as the lawyers call it. These are all valid fears and concerns.
