Santa Rosa, CA  –  March 17, 2020  –  The County of Sonoma Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector's office will temporarily close to the public beginning Tuesday, March 17, 2020 through Friday, April 3, in an effort to protect employees and the community by limiting person-to-person contact to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Erick Roeser, the Sonoma County Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector, reminds taxpayers that property taxes are due April 10, 2020.
