SOLANO COUNTY – The Solano County Treasurer, Tax-Collector, County Clerk’s Office (TTCCC) is currently closed until at least April 6, 2020 due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Despite the lobby and over-the-counter closure, TTCCC staff is currently working with residents and property owners to address questions and concerns surrounding the April 10, 2020 property tax deadline.
“Our office has received several phone calls, emails and questions from tax payers about the possible extension of the April 10 property tax deadline due to the social and financial impacts of the COVID-19 virus,” said Chuck Lomeli, Solano County Treasurer, Tax-Collector, County Clerk. “While we cannot change the April 10 property tax deadline, as it is set by California state law, we can work with individual property owners to waive penalties due to legitimate and reasonable circumstances, including those related to COVID-19.”
The April 10 property tax deadline penalty waiver process requires tax payers to provide documentation as to how they were personally impacted by COVID-19, including reduced work hours, layoff, business closure, hospitalization and other circumstances that prevented timely payment.
“We are fully aware of and understanding of the impacts of COVID-19 affecting our personal lives both physically and financially,” says Lomeli. “We encourage residents with concerns about the April 10 property tax deadline to give us a call or send us an email, as we have staff available to help.”
Property tax payments may be made by mail, online or in the drop box located at the Solano County Administration Center, located at 675 Texas Street in Fairfield. Updates on the status of the TTCCC office closure can be found on the Solano County website at www.SolanoCounty.com/Depts/TTCC and by phone at (707) 784-7485.
Please note, should changes to the April 10, 2020 property tax deadline be changed by state authorities, information will be posted on the TTCCC website. If the TTCCC office is closed on April 10, 2020, the property tax deadline, by statute, will move to the next business day the office is open.
