Central Collections maximizes Santa Cruz County’s revenue by collecting delinquent accounts. These accounts include Unsecured Delinquent Taxes, Abandoned Vehicle Abatement Fees, Agricultural Commissioner Fees, and Animal Services Fines.

Collection Officers review and evaluate delinquent accounts to determine effective collection strategies. The officers call and send correspondence to many different individuals and entities. When necessary, Central Collections also pursues legal action to recover public debts.
