San Luis Obispo County announced a new procedure for taxpayers to request a fee-waiver for property tax late charges incurred due to Covid-19 hardships.

Impacted property owners can claim a waiver of penalties and interest which will be imposed by state law if the property tax bill becomes delinquent.

The second installment of the year's property tax bills become delinquent if not paid by April 10.

A taxpayer's primary residence or properties associated with a small business, including vacation rentals are eligible for waivers.

Taxpayers with questions about the waiver request process can contact the Tax Collector's office at or by phone at (805) 781-5831, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
