Property Taxes are Due—Don’t Forget!

Property Taxes are Due—Don’t Forget!
The second property tax installment was officially due on February 1, 2022 but is considered delinquent after 5 pm on April 11, 2022. If you pay after 5pm on April 11, a 10% delinquent penalty and $10 fee will be assessed. So mail your checks in ASAP! You can also pay online by e-check or credit card: https://acgov.org/propertytax/online.htm.
The average effective property tax rate in Alameda County is 0.78%, though a good rule of thumb for California homebuyers who are trying to estimate what their property taxes will be is to multiply their home’s purchase price by 1.25%. This incorporates the base rate of 1% and additional local taxes, which are usually about 0.25%. Assessed value is calculated based on market value using a base year value. A property’s original base value is its 1975-1976 market value and can be adjusted each year by no more than 2% to account for inflation.
