Property Tax Penalty Relief during the COVID-19 Crisis

​In light of the serious economic impact of the pandemic to so many residents, Supervisor Simitian proposed, along with Board President Cindy Chavez, that the County waive the 10% penalty on second installment property tax payments, including the $20 fee for late payments, that were due on April 10, 2020. The Santa Clara County Board approved this waiver unanimously for taxes due in April 2020. The waiver applied to all property owners with no additional paperwork needed.
