Treasurer-Tax Collector


Barbara M. Lopez, the Del Norte County Tax Collector would like to remind taxpayers that all property taxes are still being billed, and will become delinquent if not paid by their respective due dates.  The Tax Collector has no legal authority to extend due dates.   However, for those who are directly impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and are unable to pay timely, a penalty waiver process after April 10, 2020 may be available to you.  I want to encourage all those who have the ability to pay taxes to do so. Property tax dollars directly support essential services such as schools, emergency response and public health which are desperately needed at this time.


For your convenience, we have a secure payment drop box outside our main entry doors at the Flynn Administration Building (southwest entrance).  You can also pay your taxes by mail, online or by phone. Property taxes can be paid by check, money order or cashier’s check through the mail. You may also pay online with a credit/debit card, E-Check or by calling our automated system at 1-844-368-3145.  Please be aware, fees apply if you are making an electronic payment. If you are unable to pay using one of the above methods, please contact our office for further assistance.

If you need assistance making an electronic payment or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call our office.

Thank you for your understanding and please stay healthy and safe,

Barbara M. Lopez, Del Norte County Tax Collector
