When are regular property taxes bills mailed?
Regular secured property tax bills are mailed once a year to the mailing address on file with the Office of the Assessor-Recorder. California state law mandates that the bills must be mailed each year by November 1. The City and County of San Francisco mails approximately 190,000 secured property tax bills each year, generally starting near the beginning of October. Bills are mailed at the rate of about 20,000 per day for 9-10 consecutive business days. Thus there may be up to two weeks difference between the dates of receipt of the first and latch mailing batches. The bill for both installments is mailed together and is mailed just one time; no reminder notices are mailed for the second installment.
