April 10th is the Property Tax Deadline and many property owners in San Diego are wondering what this means for them during this unprecedented time. Due to the wide-reaching effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, many property owners are feeling the financial impacts of the economic shutdown. While there has been no change to the property tax deadline, there are still options for those who cannot afford to pay their property taxes due to hardships caused by COVID-19.
The offices of Dan McAllister Treasurer-Tax Collector recently reached out to NSDCAR and informed us of their dedication to helping those affected by this crisis and relayed the following information outlining this :
"For those who are directly impacted by the coronavirus and are unable to pay on time, they can file a penalty cancellation request. All such requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis after April 10. This will require documentation showing why they were unable to pay their property taxes by April 10, the delinquent date. Requests will be approved as allowed by law."
They have also let us know that they are sympathetic to property owners who are facing hardships that are due to the pandemic and are going to be doing all they can to provide relief.
"We know COVID-19 has had widespread consequences for people in San Diego, California and across the nation, and we want to be as compassionate and lenient as possible,” said Dan McAllister. “We will cancel late penalties for those directly affected by the virus.”
We would like to thank and applaud the offices of Dan McAllister Treasurer-Tax Collector for all their hard work and dedication to San Diego. For more information please check out the link provided below to visit their website.
