What Are California Local Property Tax Roll Rates?
When I posted our new listing yesterday on a brand new construction home for sale in South Lake Tahoe, I got asked, "what are California taxes?"
I went to California Board of Equalization and found "California Property Tax An Overview"
Local Property Tax Roll
The assessed value determined and enrolled by the county assessor is multiplied by the appropriate tax rate to form the basis of the current year’s tax bill. The tax rate is 1 percent plus (1) the amount necessary to make annual payments due on general obligation bonds or other indebtedness incurred prior to July 1, 1978; (2) any bonded indebtedness for the acquisition or improvement of real property approved by a two-thirds majority of voters on or after July 1, 1978; and (3) effective January 1, 2001, certain bonded indebtedness for school facilities approved by 55 percent of the voters. The collection of these taxes and their allocation to the appropriate taxing jurisdictions are functions of the county tax collector and the county auditor, respectively. Like the county assessor, these officials are governed by state law.
