MONO PROPERTY TAXES DUE TOMORROW! Late Fees/Penalties can be waived.


Due to the COVID-19 emergency declaration, the deadline for filing income taxes has been pushed back to July 15. But, the final payment on Mono County property taxes, due April 10, can’t be deferred by any entity other than the California legislature. The one allowance: there is a path to waive any fees and penalties for late payments.

The process was explained in detail at Tuesday’s Mono County Board of Supervisors. The State legislature has the authority to push back the deadline, but the body won’t be in session until May.

The most relevant example of circumstances that could warrant a waiver is “disaster such as fire, flood, earthquake or civic unrest that prevents taxpayer from making timely payment.”

District 2 Supervisor Fred Stump followed up Wednesday with a detailed e-mail as well as some of the visuals used at the meeting. Unfortunately, the waiver is dependent on residents paying their property taxes, with any penalties and fines for late payment. If the request for a waiver is granted, the penalties and fines go away. A good idea for those making late payments: send one check for the tax, a second one for the potentially waived penalties.

    I spoke with the tax collector’s office – a little clarification – you fill out the paperwork and submit the checks, when you can pay. So if you can’t pay until June 10th, that is when you submit everything. Remember two checks – one for the amount of the taxes and one for the penalties. Rolling the dice, but if you are a closed business due to coronavirus guidelines, I think you will have a pretty strong case.

    As of last night at 6:00 there was still no indication from the State of California that the April 10th date will be deferred. Mono County residents that want to request a waiver can find the form at
