Property Tax in the SF Bay Area

December 27, 2021

San Francisco Bay Area Property Taxes

As San Francisco Bay Area real estate agents, we are often asked by both home buyers and sellers about property taxes. How and when is property tax assessed in the SF Bay Area? When are property tax payments due? How much do I owe in property tax?

Property taxes are very important (ie. paying them, and on time), but thankfully they are not too complicated.

When are Bay Area property taxes due?

No Darn Foolin' Around (November/December, February/April)

An easy way we like to remember when property taxes are due is the phrase, "No Darn Foolin' Around" — or NDFA.

Your first fiscal-year installment of property tax in the Bay Area comes due in November and delinquent in December. Your second installment comes due in February and delinquent in April. (NDFA!)
