Secured, Supplemental and Unsecured taxes can be scheduled in advance for any date up to and including the delinquent date – on a one time basis. A reminder notice is sent 7-30 days prior to the delinquent date and text message reminders are an option as well. Subsequent year’s taxes are NOT automatically scheduled. When the next years bill is issued the subscriber will be notified by email that their bill is available to view and schedule or pay.
The service is a collaborative effort between the Tax Collector’s office and its third-party online payment processor – KUBRA. If you have made online payments for Contra Costa County property taxes in the past, your payment was processed through KUBRA. The VBS service is not affiliated with your E-Billing or E-Reminder subscription and, therefore, your E-Billing or E-Reminder subscription will not be affected. However, the VBS service has the capability to send similar notifications, including text messages (SMS) regarding the status of your tax bill(s).
