With everyone dealing with the Stay at Home orders and adjusting to a new normal in terms of work, home schooling and social distancing it was great to the the Federal and State governments extend the tax deadlines 3 months. I was a little surprised that the County of San Mateo is only giving property owners 24 additional days. While the extension is welcome is there a reason it was less than 1/3 of the time given by other agencies collecting our taxes? If the shelter in place is extended into June will they extend the deadline until then?

I thought property taxes could not be delayed by the county period!!! Why the change all of a sudden???

The second amendment of the US Constitution was specifically written in as the SECOND amendment to ensure issues like the above could be resolved amicably.

Yeah, calling upon an armed revolt against a local government sounds sooooooo logical...if you're a holdover from the militia movement of the 1990s.

Otherwise, not so much.
