How much will my tax be?
The annual special tax is limited to the "Maximum Tax" as set forth in the establishing ordinance, and if you are the original home purchaser, in the rider to your sales contract. Taxpayers typically pay approximately 90% of the Maximum Tax. The Maximum Tax is subject to a 1.5% increase per year. However, please be advised, if your special service area is not taxed at the Maximum Rate, the increase from year to year may be greater than 1.5%. You can contact David Taussig and Associates for additional information.
