Nevada County Treasurer and Tax Collector Tina M. Vernon reminds property owners that the delinquent date for the first installment of the 2018-2019 secured tax bill is at 5 p.m. today.

Payments must be received in the tax collector’s office or show a postmark of Dec. 10. If mailing close to the date, Vernon recommends getting a hand stamped postmark to ensure timely payment.
