NEVADA CITY, Calif. October 30, 2018 – After a year long property tax software replacement project and the challenges of converting data over to newer technology, the Tax Collector’s Office is happy to announce that bills have been created and will hit the mail on October 31st. State law requires that tax bills are mailed by Nov 1 of each year with the 1st installment due postmarked no later then December 10th and the 2nd due postmarked no later then April 10th. In a normal year, bills are generally sent by the 2nd week of October.

Tina Vernon, Nevada County Tax Collector stated, “It has been a challenging process. Coming from a 40 year old legacy system to the 21st century is exciting but does not come without hurdles, especially when converting data. Getting these bills mailed on time was important to us, but more important to us was that they were correct”.

Copies of the tax bill can be found on the website at Payments can be made online through Lexis Nexis via e-check or credit card. A third party convenience fee of $0.50 is charged to e-check payments and a 2.4% fee to all credit/debit card payments made online.

Payments can be made in-person at the Rood Government Center at 950 Maidu Ave., Suite 290 in Nevada City, M-F 8am-5pm or can be dropped in the 24-7 drop box located in the Rood Center Parking lot.

Vernon stated, “The process of getting the bills out the door requires work to be completed by the Assessor, Auditor, Tax Collector and County Information Systems. Everyone worked extra hard in making sure this deadline was met. My sincere appreciation goes out to the staff for their hard work and to the public for their patience through this transition process”.
