    I hope that after we pay up (with great difficulty) you extend the deadline. That’s an old trick and would set a bad precedent.

    We finally paid our taxes 1,900.00 without any relief from Ventura County Tax Department. The penalties are high and they keep going up. We went without food for a week, my husband lost his sub teaching job. We cannot pay our monthly mortgage.

    Yet, Ventura Co tax department would not help anyone here.

    I will remember your name forever. If your position is voted in I will not vote for you and I will help the other person who is running.
    Ventura is about money, and since our stupid Gov. Newsom did not help I think here in Ventura Co. we are on our own.
    Los Angeles stated they are going to give the tax payers and business people 1 month extra. Well, why did nt we get that.
    Discussed to live here anymore.

    At tonight’s Oxnard Council meeting, we’re told that the County will now take applications to waive late fees/penalties

    Why California Governor do not extend the property tax dead line? Not only VC, but the whole state!?
    We all got hurt by COVID-19 pandemic, either economically or emotionally (including our tax collectors!) no need to write down the reasons to request waivers.
    I as a resident of VC, am expecting our congress men/women to step forward and get the approval ASAP.

    Since it is the California government that is causing us to not be able to earn income, it is the California government that should suspend all late fees, interest charges, and negative reports to credit agencies and ensure that all private companies also suspend these things for any payments made late by citizens and businesses.

    As Ventura County’s Treasurer-Tax Collector, I can tell you that I do NOT disagree with Controller Yee. She makes it clear that neither I nor the Board of Supervisors has the authority to change the deadline. After the deadline, I will review applications for waiver of late payment penalties, based on economic hardship caused directly by the COVID-19 contagion. The Governor or the legislature have the power to change the deadline, and they may take action.

    “While the California Franchise Tax Board, which I chair, has the legal authority to extend filing and payment deadlines for income taxes, I do not have authority over county property tax collection,” explained Controller Yee. “However, each county treasurer tax-collector has the power to waive penalties and interest for late payments due to circumstances beyond the taxpayer’s control. It is my expectation that county leaders will consider exercising those powers.”

    C’mon Man.
    There is somebody who can make this decision!
    Is the county treasurer a elected position?

    All other taxes in USA have been postponed.

    Remember this guy on Election Day.

    Yes, Mr. Workens. Please remember me on Election Day. I am the guy who opened an office in Thousand Oaks to serve the East County. I am the guy who negotiated the contracts that reduced the credit card service fee. I am the guy who led the program to bring property tax relief to victims of the Thomas and Woolsey fires. I am the guy who saved $250,000 per year in salary costs by personally managing the County investment program. I am the guy who personally reviews every application for relief from late penalty payments. Yup, Mr. Workens, remember me on Election Day.

    “Ventura County Tax Collector can’t extend Property Tax Deadline”

    Then what has he done to get Supervisors to extend it?

    Steven Hintz

    As you well know, the Board of Supervisors has no authority to extend the deadline. What I have done is to assure them, and you, that I will review every application for a waiver of late payment penalties based on economic hardship caused by the COVID-19 contagion.
