Treasurer - Tax Collector

Ebilling

The San Joaquin County Treasurer-Tax Collector is now offering an ebilling service for annual Secured property taxes. You will now be able to receive your property tax bill and payment reminders by email.

Once you subscribe, you will automatically receive an email with a link to a copy of your property tax bill twice a year, receive reminder notifications of tax delinquent dates, and have the ability to login and download a copy of your bill at any time. We will continue to send paper bills to taxpayers who sign up for the service. In a future update, we will also introduce paperless billing.

At this time, this service is only available for annual Secured property tax bills. We will be expanding the service in the coming months to include Supplemental and Unsecured bills. For information on future updates, sign up for email notifications or check our website.

Failure to receive an email reminder does not relieve liability to pay or excuse any penalties incurred. 

Important Ebilling Information
