Alameda County will waive penalties for late payment of property taxes, due to financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, through May 6, 2012, according to county tax collector Henry Levy.
The county policy follows an executive order issued by Gov. Newsom on May 6. The policy extends an earlier waiver period announced by the county due to expire at the end of the month.
However, Levy said the waivers will not apply after June 1 to secondary residences or property owned by large businesses.
The full county policy and instructions to apply for the waiver are available at https://treasurer.acgov.org. Although county offices remain closed, property owners may also call (510) 272‐6800 for more information.
