Property Tax NewsFlash


1st Installment of the 2021-2022 Property Tax Bill due December 10th.

Tina M. Vernon, Nevada County Treasurer and Tax Collector, would like to remind property owners that the due date for the 1st installment of the 2021-2022 secured tax bill is December 10, 2021, at 5:00 p.m.  Payments must be received in this office or show a postmark of December 10, 2021.  If mailing is close to this date, we highly encourage a hand-stamped timely postmark to ensure timely payment. If received after the Dec. 10th date without a timely postmark, a 10% penalty will be added for late payment.  

If you own property in Nevada County and have not received a tax bill, a copy may be printed from the tax collector’s website at

Avoid the lines!  Payment transactions can be made online or by phone at 1-877-445-5617 up until 11:59 p.m on December 10th. Information can be found at You must have your assessment number and amount due.  Please note there is a 2.38% fee associated with credit/debit card transactions but no charge for electronic checks.  

Don’t want to come up to the office?  A convenient outside drive-up Drop Box, emptied twice daily, is available in the parking lot of the Rood Government Center at 950 Maidu Ave in Nevada City until 5:00 p.m. on December 10th.   Follow the signs for location.   

For in-person payments, the Tax Collector's office is located on the 2nd floor of the Rood Center at 950 Maidu Avenue in Nevada City.  Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. Lines can be long on December 10th so plan accordingly.  

If mailing your payment, send payment along with your payment stub to P.O. Box 128, Nevada City, CA 95959-0128.  Once again, if mailing is close to the 10th, it is IMPERATIVE to get a hand-stamped timely postmark or you will run the risk of a penalty due to a late postmark.

There is a convenient drop-box located at Truckee Town Hall that will be open until 5pm on December 10th.  Payments are removed daily and will be hand-delivered to the Tax Collector's office on December 11, 2021, and posted as timely.  In-person payments in the Truckee area will resume March 31 and April 1, 2022, at Truckee Town Hall located at 10183 Truckee Airport Rd in Truckee.  More information will be posted on the website in March 2022.
