In San Benito County, Treasurer, Tax Collector and Public Administrator have been consolidated into a single elective position with a four-year term. The mission of this office is to effectively and efficiently perform the duties and responsibilities of each function with excellence in customer service and fiscal responsibility.

 

 

The Office of the Treasurer is responsible for cash management, investing, and safekeeping all County funds. This office is also the depository for all County, School Districts and special district funds. 

 

***A list of Unclaimed Checks that the County has distributed, but have not been cashed by the recipient, is available for viewing on the Auditor’s website.

 

The Office of the Tax Collector is responsible for billing and collecting of real estate and personal property taxes countywide, including taxes on mobile homes, lot line adjustments, and tax clearances.  At this time San Benito County does not issue unincorporated business licenses.

 

 

The Public Administrator takes charge of property of persons who have died without an appointed executor or estate administrator, or whose heirs are nonresidents of the State of California or the United States. The duties, power and responsibility of the Public Administrator in estate administration are the same as those required of any individual appointed by the court as administrator/executor of a decedent’s estate.

 

***The Public Administrator no longer handles indigent burials for the county.  The Coroner/Sheriff is now handling indigent cremations.  Please contact Detective Sgt. Lamonica at 636-4080 for further information.
