Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk Reminds Business, Aircraft, and Vessel Owners of May 7, 2019 Filing Deadline

News Date
Apr 17, 2019

San Diego County Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk, Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr., would like to remind all business, aircraft, and vessel owners that this year’s deadline to file their property statement without a penalty is May 7, 2019. All filings must be received or postmarked on or before May 7, 2019 to avoid a 10 percent late filing penalty.

In January, approximately 65,000 statements and notices were mailed out to business, aircraft, and vessel owners. Included are over 57,000 business accounts that were deemed eligible to file electronically. Dronenburg strongly encourages eligible business owners to e-file their statements online by May 7. The e-file process is simple, accurate, and a secure way to pay your property taxes.

We want to remind taxpayers that taxable ownership of all personal property is determined as of January 1, 2019. Anyone receiving a statement or notice who was not the owner as of January 1, 2019, should return the statement with supporting information as soon as possible. This information will be used to update the Assessor’s records and future assessment notices.

Dronenburg is committed to providing excellent customer service and encourages taxpayers to call or contact the Kearny Mesa Branch Office if they need assistance. Additional information and access to the online e-file system can be found at or by calling the Business Personal Property Division at (858) 505-6100.
