Collectors[edit | edit source]

In counties since 1861, the tax collector collects taxes. Previously the treasurer and later the sheriff collected taxes. Except for inheritance taxes, the tax collector collects all county taxes, including "taxes on real and personal property, schools and special districts, and business licenses."[1] Sometimes in the past, the office of tax collector was combined with the office of county treasurer and sheriff. Now it is usually with the treasurer's office.[1]

State Archives[edit | edit source]

The State Archvies has the tax records from 1861 on. The main record collections are:

  • Secured Tax Rolls -- A record of all taxes levied on real property.
  • Indexes to Secured Tax Rolls -- Indexes to records of taxes levied on real property.
  • Unsecured Tax Rolls -- A record of all taxes levied on certain personal property.

For a fuller description of the contents of these records, see The Historical Record of County Government in California.
