November 2020 is a short month due to the holidays. Office of Finance City Hall and Van Nuys public counters will be closed on November 25, 26 and 27, 2020.

Office of Finance is requesting customers intending to pay their tax and/or permit liabilities in cash over $1,000.00 to send their cash payment appointment request by 11/15/2020. They cannot guarantee a cash appointment if the request is sent after 11/15/2020. Once the cash appointment slots are full, you will have to find other payment methods to pay either online (business tax only), mail in your payments (business tax only) or visit our Van Nuys location. Payments received after the due date will be considered late and will be subject to interest and penalties.

Customers who normally pay in cash are now able to pay their tax and permit obligations via Dama Electronic Payment.
