Avoid Substantial Penalties and Liens on your properties.

Penalties include a 10% penalty added after 5 pm on December 11th. Typically penalties for late payments occur December 10th however since the 10th falls on a Sunday, you have until 5 pm Monday the 11th. After the June 30th fiscal tax year end, a $33.00 redemption fee and a 1-1/2% per month (18% per annum) penalty is added to the unpaid tax amount. If a “tax defaulted” notation appears on your tax bill, you may have unpaid taxes for prior years. Substantial savings in penalties may be achieved by paying prior year’s back taxes or by initiating a five year installment plan of redemption. FIVE YEAR PAYMENT PLAN

Any person may elect to pay their delinquent taxes in installments, at any time, prior to 5 p.m. on the last business day of the fifth fiscal year after the property originally became tax-defaulted and prior to the property becoming subject to the Tax Collector’s Power to Sell (California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 4216, and following.) The property will not become subject to the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Power to Sell, and the right of redemption will not cease, as long as payments are made according to the terms of this payment plan.

Payments made while on the pay plan are not refundable. The Treasurer-Tax Collector will apply any refund, for any tax year, due the assessee and related to the tax-defaulted property that is on an installment plan of redemption. The refund applied will be treated like any other payment that is made during the payment plan.

According to CA. R&T code the Tax Collector must review the postmark date to determine if payment was mailed prior to the deadline.

Affects of Prop. 13

Baby boomers are looking for new housing opportunities as they retire. Proposition 13, which set real estate taxes to be based on the purchase price of homes, will now have major effects on the California residential real estate market. Surveys show that more than half of California’s homeowners are 55 years or older and that many of them have owned their current residence for 20+ years. So what happens as these homes are put on the market?

The largest challenge is faced by new homebuyers. As their property taxes are recalibrated by the new sales prices, they will face increased tax payments. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

 

With increased property tax revenue, the state will be able to undertake massive infrastructure projects to improve roads, schools, and other public services. This could greatly improve property values for new homebuyers over the course of a few years. The community improvements could have excellent impact on their property investments.

 

With these changes should come an increased awareness that your property is not overassessed. To make sure that you avoid over-assessments, it is wise to have us review them annually. Click on our no-cost review button below.

Liability for Taxable Property

Annually, whoever owns taxable property on January 1 (the lien date) becomes liable for a tax calculated at 1 percent of the “taxable” value of the property. Article XIII A of the California Constitution (Proposition 13) also permits adding to the 1 percent tax rate a rate needed to pay interest and redemption charges for voter-approved indebtedness. Such additional rates will vary from area to area within a county.
Tangible personal property is taxable where it has established “permanent situs” (location), regardless of where the owner lives. The only exception is personal property belonging to members of the armed services who are on active service in California and who have permanent residence outside of California. Some types of personal property do not have a fixed location and are movable, for example, copy machines. As a result, determining permanent situs depends on a number of factors including the type of property, the way the property is typically used, and where the property owner lives.
