Hey San Mateo! Did You Know?

<br />

In San Mateo County, property taxes are reassessed at the time a home is purchased.  If the new purchase price is higher than the last, there will be a supplemental tax bill sent to the new buyer.  Depending on the workload of the county assessor, that could take a few months. 

The problem with that potential delay is the buyer is responsible to insure that that payment was received on time to avoid late fees.  How do you do that?  Use the County’s Secured Property Tax Search website

As a homeowner you can verify that your payment has been received.

You can search by your address or your parcel number.
