2nd Installment of the 2020-2021 Property Tax Bill due April 12th

Tina M. Vernon, Nevada County Treasurer and Tax Collector, would like to remind property owners that the due date for the 2nd installment of the 2020-2021 secured tax bill is April 12, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Payments must be received in this office or show a postmark of April 12, 2021.  If mailing close to this date, we highly encourage a hand stamped timely postmark to ensure timely payment. If received after the April 12th date without a timely postmark, a 10% penalty plus a $10 cost will be added for late payment.  

If you own property in Nevada County and have not received a tax bill, a copy may be printed from the tax collector’s website at 

Payment transactions can be made online at or by phone at (877) 445-5617 up until 11:59 PM on April 12th.   Please note that electronic checks are free of charge but there is a 2.38% fee, charged by the vendor, for credit/debit card transactions.  

A convenient outside drive-up Drop Box is available in the parking lot of the Rood Government Center until 5pm on April 12th.   Follow the signs for location.   

In-person cash payments are being accepted by appointment only.  For appointments  email us at or call us at (530)265-1285.  

If you are experiencing financial hardship due to COVID 19, the Governor’s Executive Order allows for penalties to be waived if certain conditions are met and substantiated by documentation.   Application for penalty relief and criteria can be found on our website.  The final date for payment to avoid penalties for approved waivers is May 6, 2021. 


In-person payments will not be available for the dates of April 1-2, 2021.  There is a drop box located at Truckee Town Hall for those that are unable to pay online or through the mail.  We are truly sorry for this inconvenience.  We hope to resume these services in December 2021.  Note that the new location will be at the Truckee Town Hall.   More details will be sent with the 21-22 property tax bill.
