If you do not pay the first installment of your annual Riverside County (CA) tax bill by 5 p.m. on December 10, then that installment becomes delinquent, and a 10% delinquent penalty is incurred.
If you fail to pay the second installment by 5 p.m. on April 10, it becomes delinquent and a 10% penalty on the unpaid taxes as well as an administrative charge of $38.63 are added.
Likewise, if you fail to pay any supplemental tax bill installment by the applicable delinquency date, the same penalties and charges accrue as for delinquent annual taxes.
If there are ANY unpaid taxes as of 5 p.m. on June 30, then the property becomes tax defaulted. Once the property has become tax defaulted, a redemption fee of $36.77 and additional penalties begin to accrue at the rate of 1-1/2% per month of the unpaid taxes. This monthly penalty is added at 5 p.m. on the last day of each month (or the following business day if the last day of the month falls on a weekend or holiday).
Property taxes are collected by the county, although they are governed by California State Law. The Tax Collector of Riverside County collects taxes on behalf of the following entities: the county, most of the county's incorporated cities, school districts and all other taxing agencies located in the county, including special districts (e.g., flood control districts, sanitation districts). Upon collection of these taxes by the county, appropriate distribution is made to the various taxing agencies by the County Auditor-Controller
How is the amount of my property taxes determined?
In order for the amount of your taxes to be determined, the Riverside County Assessor first determines the value of your property. Generally, the assessed value is the cash or market value at the time of purchase. This value increases not more than 2% per year until the property is sold or any new construction is completed, at which time it must be reassessed.
After the Assessor has determined the property value, the Auditor-Controller applies the appropriate tax rates, which include the general tax levy, locally voted special taxes, and any city or district direct assessments. The general tax levy is determined in accordance with State law and is limited to $1 per $100 of assessed value of your property. After applying the tax rates against the assessed value, the Auditor-Controller calculates the total tax amount. Finally, the Riverside County Tax Collector prepares property tax bills based on the Auditor-Controller's calculations, distributes the bills, and then collects the taxes.
Do I have any recourse if I disagree with the valuation placed on my property by the Riverside County Assessor?
Yes. You may take the matter up with the Assessor to see if that office will change the valuation. Additionally, the Board of Supervisors has established an Assessment Appeals Board for the purpose of resolving valuation problems. Appeals on regular assessments must be filed each year between July 2 and November 30 (valuation information is available July 1 at the Assessor's regional offices). Appeals on corrected assessments and escaped assessments (assessments that did not take place when they should have) must be filed no later than 60 days from the mailing date on the corrected or escaped tax bill. For supplemental assessments, appeals must be filed within 60 days of the mailing of the Assessor's "Notice of Supplemental Assessment".
If you choose to appeal your assessment, you should still pay your tax installments in full by the appropriate deadlines; otherwise, you may incur penalties while the case is in appeals. If your appeal is granted, a refund will be issued to you. Appeals applications and further information about the appeals process can be obtained by calling (951) 955-1060 or writing to Assessment Appeals Board, P.O. Box 1147, Riverside, CA 92502-1147 or on their web site here.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
