Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector

Second installment of county property taxes due Thursday

County Seal No BackgroundThursday marks the last day San Bernardino County property owners can pay the second installment of property taxes without penalty.

Property taxes are the largest discretionary source of funding for the County, and a significant source of funding for school districts, community college districts and special districts.

There are several ways property owners can pay.

In addition to the Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector office in San Bernardino, a property tax payment center opened in Hesperia on April 1 and will remain open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Thursday at the High Desert Government Center, 15900 Smoke Tree Street. Checks will be the only form of payment accepted at this location.

Online and telephone payments can be made at or by calling 909-387-8308. Electronic payments accepted include checking or savings account free of charge. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit card payments are also accepted; however,
a convenience fee is charged and required by the credit card companies. If using online bill pay through a banking institution, taxpayers should contact their bank regarding procedures for ensuring timely payment of taxes and their bank’s use of USPS cancellation marks. These transactions result in a mailed check and payments received after April 10, 2014, without a USPS cancellation mark will be considered late and incur a penalty.

Mailed payments should be sent to the Tax Collector’s Office, 172 West Third Street, First Floor, San Bernardino, California, 92415. Only payments with a USPS postmark cancellation on or before April 10, 2014 will be considered timely. Payments in person can be made by cash, check, or money order at 172 West Third Street, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector recieves multiple awards for financial reporting

County Seal No BackgroundSan Bernardino County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector Larry Walker received two awards from the Government Finance Officers’ Association (GFOA) – the Award of Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting and a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. Both awards were presented to  Walker at today’s Board of Supervisors meeting.

“I am honored to receive both of these awards, and extremely proud of my staff for their hard work and dedication,” Walker said. This affirms my commitment to making the citizens of the County my priority by presenting the County’s financial information in a transparent, easily accessible, and understandable format.”

The Popular Annual Financial Reporting Awards Program was established in 1991 by GFOA. The Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector’s Office has received this award for the 7 th  consecutive year, recognizing its efforts to develop a high-quality popular annual report that is designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to the general public.

In part, this award is presented to state and local governments that prepare annual financial reporting exceeding the minimum requirements of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), while also preparing comprehensive annual financial reports that evidence the spirit of transparency and full disclosure. Reports are reviewed by members of the GFOA staff and the GFOA’s Special Review Committee, comprised of individuals with expert knowledge of public-sector financial reporting.
