El Dorado County’s vendor (R.R. Donnelley and Sons) in an oversight omitted the return payment envelope for the 2014-15 unsecured property tax bills. The third-party vendor will be mailing the return payment envelope at no cost to the county.
The return payment envelope will be sent from R.R. Donnelley and Sons with a letter of apology for any inconvenience this may have caused taxpayers.
According to El Dorado County Tax Collector, C. L. Raffety, “Unfortunately for taxpayers this doesn’t delay the delinquency date. The unsecured tax bill is due upon receipt and the bills will be delinquent if not paid on or before Sept. 2, 2014 at 5 p.m. The mailing address for property tax payments is P.O. Box 678002, Placerville, CA 95667-8002.”
