Payment Information


How Much Do I Owe?

To locate the amount of your Secured Property Taxes, click the following link How much are my property taxes? and enter your Assessor's Identification Number. This website provides current year and delinquent secured tax information. Current year is available between October 1 and June 30 only. Delinquent Secured Tax information is available all year except during the month of July.

To locate the amount of your Current Year Unsecured Taxes, click the following link How much are my Unsecured taxes? and enter the year and bill number. This website provides current year unsecured tax information and is available between March 1 and June 30 only. Delinquent Unsecured Tax information is only available by telephone or in person. Please call (213)893-7935 or visit us at 225 N. Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. We are located on the first floor in Room 122.

SAVE MONEY! SAVE TIME! PAY ONLINE! - Pay your taxes online using your checking account or credit/debit card. You will need your Assessor's Identification Number (AIN) to search and retrieve payment information. You can make online payments 24 hours a day, 7 days a week until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the delinquency date.

There is no cost to you for electronic check (eCheck) payments. You will need to use the AIN and Personal Identification Number (PIN), which is printed on your original Secured Property Tax Bill, to complete the transaction. Each eCheck transaction is limited to $999,999.99.

When paying by eCheck, your bank account must be Automated Clearing House (ACH)-enabled, meaning the transaction can settle through the ACH Network. If your bank account has a debit block to prevent unauthorized organizations from debiting your account via ACH, you must notify your bank to authorize ACH debits from Los Angeles County with a debit filter with the Company Identification Number of 0 0 0 0 0 7 9 1 6 1. Los Angeles County updated its Company Identification Number in September 2018, so you must update this Company Identification Number if you previously had a debit filter on your bank account.

We cannot provide the PIN by telephone, e-mail or fax. We can only mail a copy of the original bill to the property address or mailing address we currently have on record. For a copy of the original Secured Property Tax Bill, please email us at info@ttc.lacounty.gov, be sure to list your AIN and use the phrase “Duplicate Bill” in the subject line or call us at 1(888) 807-2111 or 1(213) 974-2111, press 1, 2, and then press 9 to reach an agent.

For questions regarding online payments by eCheck, please email us at echeck@ttc.lacounty.gov.

You may also make Online Payments by using major credit cards or debit cards. Each online credit/debit card transaction is limited to $99,999.99, including a cost of 2.25 percent of the transaction amount. For questions regarding online payments by credit/debit card, please email us at ccard@ttc.lacounty.gov.

Have your checking account information or your credit/debit card information available when you begin the online payment process. To make a payment now, go to Online Payments. There is a maximum of ten shopping cart items per transaction. If you have more items to pay than the allowable maximum, you must complete the current transaction first, and then you will be able to select additional items to pay.

Other Payment Options

Mailed Payments

Please use the envelope enclosed with your tax bill and include the payment stub from the bill. If both installments are being paid, please include both payment stubs. Do not attach staples, clips, tape, or correspondence. To assist taxpayers in understanding how to avoid penalties that could result from postmark issues, the Tax Collector has compiled important related information on how to Avoid Penalties By Understanding Postmarks. Make your payment payable to the Los Angeles County Tax Collector and mail to:

Pay by Credit Card or Visa Debit Card Over the Telephone - We accept major credit card and debit card payments over the telephone through a third-party vendor who charges a fee to utilize this service. To pay by telephone, call toll-free 1(888) 473-0835. You will need your Assessor's Identification Number (AIN), Year, and Sequence, which is printed on your Secured Property Tax Bill, to complete the transaction. Please retain the confirmation number for future reference. Each credit/debit card transaction is limited to $99,999.99, including a cost of 2.25 percent of the transaction amount. If you do not have the current year Secured Property Tax Bill, please call the Bill Request Line at 1(213) 893-1103 to request a Substitute Secured Property Tax Bill.

Online Banking or Bill Payment Services - Many banks and the Treasurer and Tax Collector recommend that you do not use these services to pay property taxes. The reason is that California Revenue and Taxation Code 2512 states that the Treasurer and Tax Collector must process a received payment as of the date of the United States Postal Service (USPS) postmark. Banking institutions use permit imprint presorted envelopes, which the USPS does not postmark. In the absence of a postmark, we apply penalties based exclusively on the date we receive payment. Please read Avoid Penalties by Understanding Postmarks to learn more.

Contact Us - For all other questions, please email us at info@ttc.lacounty.gov or call (888) 807-2111, press 1, 2, and then press 9 to reach an agent. You can reach the Los Angeles County Treasurer and Tax Collector's website at ttc.lacounty.gov.
