Paying Your California Property Taxes

If you're reading this bright and early on Monday morning, April 8, 2019, you have just two days left to pay your second installment of California property taxes...and that means before the late date.  Here in CA, our property taxes are due in two installments, November 1 and February 1, but the grace periods extend to December 10 and April 10, respectively.  And make no mistake, most Californians that don't impound/escrow their taxes are making the payments before the late dates.

I cover the topic of California property taxes in more detail in my blog post, which you can find HERE.

There is good information here! It's interesting how each state has their own Tax Laws!
