How do I View a Past Tax Bill in Placer County

Thinking of moving to Placer County, California?

Or may you’re just relocating within Placer County … We’re often asked about taxes for a property they’re interested in buying and the breakdown of those taxes.

We can help you find the info and answers to your questions! And when in doubt, ALWAYS contact the Placer County Tax Collectors Office 530-889-4120. Get the direct source information to verify. A real estate agent cannot relay this information for risk of information changing (and beyond their control), but we know you need and want this info (as would we).
