If the delinquency date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the hour of delinquency is 5 on the next business day. If paid by mail, enclose entire bill and self-addressed stamped envelope if receipt is desired; otherwise, send stub(s) covered by payment. Assessment Parcel Numbers (APN) on which payment is being made should be shown on your check. 

The postmark of the U.S. Postal Service determines the payment date. Checks returned by the bank for any reason will incur an additional fee; if returned after a penalty date, the penalty will also be assessed. If your tax bill is not available, please provide your APN number or an adequate legal description along with your payment.
