First, let me express our deep sympathy and support for you and your loved ones during this very difficult time. We will do everything we can to help you through the challenges you are facing.
Current tax bill information:
If you have lost your home or employment due to the Camp Fire, and you pay your taxes directly (no impound account), please be assured that there will be no penalties imposed for payments due on December 10 that are paid after that date. The Assessor will be re-assessing damaged properties as quickly as possible, and new tax bills will be issued, with new due dates. This will adjust property values from Nov. 8 through June 30, 2019. Please file a calamity claim to get the process started. The form and other information about the property reassessment process can be found here: http://www.buttecounty.net/assessor.
If you have already sent in your tax payment and do not want the check processed, we may be able to help. We are currently holding those payments. First, contact your bank to see if your check is still outstanding (not paid against your account). If it has not been paid, you may call 552-3720 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to advise us not to process your payment and make arrangements regarding the check.
