This week is your last chance to pay property taxes and win tickets to see the Dalai Lama speak in San Diego. While most of us would rather see His Holiness rather than pay taxes, we have information on both.
County Property Tax Deadline Is Here
The second installment of property taxes is due April 10. Five county offices will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to accommodate late filers.
• Downtown San Diego, County Administration Center, 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 162.
• San Marcos, 141 E. Carmel St.
• Chula Vista, 590 Third Ave.
• El Cajon, 200 S. Magnolia Ave.
• Kearny Mesa, 9225 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.
Payments can also be made over the telephone at 877-829-4732, or online at sdtreastax.com.
If taxes have you all worked up, you can look forward to something free.
Win Two Tickets To See the Dalai Lama
Tickets for the Dalai Lama’s appearance at UC San Diego on April 18 were gone within hours, but Patch is conducting a photo contest that ends on Friday morning, with two tickets as the grand prize. The Tibetan spiritual leader will be talking about global warming, climate change and its effects on humans and the economy.
Here’s how you can win the tickets: Take a photo of yourself incorporating environmentally conscious practices in your everyday life. That can be anything from shopping with a reusable grocery bag, composting in your back yard, or rolling up your sleeves for a beach cleanup. Short videos will be accepted, too.
