TaxType: Mello-Roos Community Facilities District

Community Facilities District No. 12 was established pursuant to the Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act of 1982. Qualified electors authorized the district in 2002, along with the issuance of up to $18,000,000.00 in bonded indebtedness. Bonds were issued to pay for certain public facilities and/or services that benefit the district. A special tax is levied on properties in the district to pay the interest and principal on the bonds as well as administrative expenses.

Proceeds from the sale of Bonds and the special taxes collected will be used to finance School Facilities.



Each parcel is assigned a maximum special tax, which is typically based on development status, property use, and/or size of improvements. The actual annual special tax is based on the interest and principal due on the bonds for the current fiscal year, services costs, if any, and administrative expenses. However, the actual annual special tax cannot exceed the applicable maximum special tax.

The maximum special tax for Developed Property in the district increases by the greater of 2% or the percentage generated from the following equation: 4.00% X 17.45% + Index X 82.55% where the Index is the annual percentage change in the Marshall & Swift Western Region Class D Wood Frame Index, each fiscal year. The maximum special tax for Undeveloped Property in the district increases two percent (2%) each fiscal year, while the actual annual special tax may vary with the needs of the district provided that the amount does not exceed the maximum special tax..

How Long:
The Special Tax shall be levied for a term of thirty-three (33) fiscal years after the last series of bonds has been issued, as determined by the Board, provided that annual special taxes shall not be levied after fiscal year 2042-43.
