RedState reports Property taxes in California are insanely expensive, as we all know. They sting everyone, including Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).
He personally owns more than $6 million in real estate in the Golden State, giving him a massive property tax bill every year.
And even though he received $2,695,000 cash in late January from Union Bank as a cash-out refinance on his $3.7 million Sacramento County mansion, he didn’t turn around and pay property taxes due in either Sacramento County or Marin County. In fact, at this moment his Kentfield estate is listed as “delinquent” on the Marin County Tax Collector’s website:
Property taxes in California are due in two installments, December 10 and April 10, and are listed delinquent if they’re not paid by July 1. At this point, the Newsoms owe a $2,601.16 in penalties in costs on top of $22,444.92 in property taxes (that’s the second installment, yep).
He *has* paid this year’s property taxes on his Fair Oaks mansion but paid them late – on June 25 – along with a $2,094.15 late fee.
