Madera County Property Taxes Collected and Posted for 2022

MADERA COUNTY — “Over a hundred million dollars in property tax payments were collected and posted from the December 10th property tax deadline,” reported Tracy Kennedy, Madera County Treasurer-Tax Collector.

The delay was due in part to the Groundwater Sustainability Project fee injunction granted by the Superior Court of California for the County of Madera on December 6, 2022. The preliminary injunction did not expressly order refunds to be made, however, the Board of Supervisors felt it was the best course of action for refunds to be issued on the Delta-Mendota Canal and Madera Subbasin GSP fees.

Refunds will be issued for those who are eligible by March 15, 2023.

“Although we were unable to post and balance sooner than usual I am very grateful to have a team that strives to raise the bar with each tax season. It’s all hands-on deck and the staff works together to make sure all customers are taken care of. The fact that they post and balance payments in such a short period of time is remarkable,” stated Ms. Kennedy. The funds from property taxes are apportioned to local school districts and cities (Madera and Chowchilla).

“This collection period, we received over $16.9 million in E-check payments which is 20% increase in the number of E-check payments we collected this time last year. This is a considerable increase of which I am very proud of. Our office has been working diligently to promote our Free E-checks because they are easy to use, they post in real time, and they are FREE to the taxpayer!” said Ms. Kennedy.
