The IRS announced that it will be extending the filing deadline for taxpayers impacted by the winter storms. Only taxpayers affected by these storms, which include residents and business owners in San Bernardino County, qualify for the extension which is now due October 16, 2023.

Property taxes will still be due this month and San Bernardino County is encouraging property owners to pay the second installment of property taxes before Monday, April 10th. This is the last day to pay without incurring a 10% late penalty.
The county is also warning taxpayers to beware of fraudulent telephone calls and emails soliciting property tax payments. According to a recent press release from the Auditor-Controller’s office they confirmed that their office does not initiate unsolicited phone calls or emails requesting payment for secured property taxes. “Taxpayers need to stay vigilant when providing personal and financial information over the phone or by email,” cautioned SBC Auditor-Controller, Ensen Mason. “Anyone receiving a phone call or email requesting property tax payment with the threat their property will be sold should immediately contact our office and report the incident.”
