Tax Collector » Bulk Tax Payments

Effective February 1, 2008, in accordance with the State of California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 2503.2 (b), the tax collector for any city, county, or city and county may, in his or her discretion, require any taxpayer, or any paying agent of a taxpayer or taxpayers, who makes an aggregate payment of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) or more on the two most recent regular installments on the secured roll or on the one installment of the most recent unsecured tax roll, to make subsequent payments by electronic funds transfer.

In an effort to streamline the handling of these large payments, the San Bernardino County Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector is requiring tax paying entities that make aggregate (total for the year) payments in the amount of $50,000 or more to make all future payments by ACH debit, credit card or wire transfer. This alternative payment method will enable us to effectively process your payment and provide proof of the transaction.

A flat text file or Microsoft Excel spreadsheet detailing the associated assessor parcel numbers and corresponding bill and installment numbers, must be submitted with the ACH debit, credit card payment, or wire transfer. Please refer to our Bulk Payment documentation for the proper file format along with the instructions to perform a wire transfer.

PLEASE NOTE: Payment files must be uploaded through this website and validated prior to submitting payment via wire transfer. Failure to validate amounts due prior to submitting payment via wire transfer may be cause for rejection of payment. Penalty and interest charges may apply should your payment be rejected for any reason.

Bulk Payment Extranet support is available during normal business hours, excluding County holidays, by calling (909) 387-8308.
Pursuant to the State of California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 2503.2(e), all funds remitted to the County of San Bernardino Auditor-Controller/Treasurer/Tax Collector via electronic wire transfer for the payment of property taxes must be verified and accepted by the County of San Bernardino Treasurer's office (Treasurer) no later than 5:00 P.M. Pacific Standard Time on the delinquency date of a property tax installment to be considered timely.

Each financial institution has different cutoff times to initiate wire transfers, as well as transit times for the wire to reach its destination. Please check with your individual financial institution to ensure proper credit for your payment prior to initiating a wire transfer. An electronic wire transfer is completed by acceptance by the bank designated by the tax collector of the payment specified by the originator's payment order.

Acceptance of payment intentions submitted electronically does not constitute timely payment unless funds are received, verified and accepted by the Treasurer within three (3) business days, or by 5:00 P.M. Pacific Standard Time on the delinquency date of a property tax installment, whichever comes first.

Failure to remit funds via wire transfer, or be verified and accepted by the time and/or date specified, shall be cause for the Tax Collector to disregard all submitted payment intentions and apply all applicable penalties, fees, and costs to unpaid tax bills.
