The Installment Plan of Redemption (5-pay plan) is a plan that allows a taxpayer the ability to pay delinquent secured taxes in a minimum of five (5) installment payments. A new installment plan may be initiated after June 30 of the fiscal year in which the property taxes become delinquent. To start a 5 Pay Plan for delinquent taxes, you must:
Complete the 5-Pay Plan application
Make an initial payment of 20% or more of the delinquent amount due (total taxes which includes penalties, fees and interest) plus a set up fee of $25.00. This initial payment must in the form of a certified check, money order or cash.
Pay all current year taxes due in addition to 20% of the delinquent taxes due on or before April 10th of each year.
Please read the plan instructions carefully and call our office at (714) 834-3411 if you have any questions on how it works.
