Tax and Mello-Roos information for Temecula, Murrieta, Wildomar, Canyon Lake, Lake Elsinore, Sun City, Menifee and Winchester.

What is Mello-Roos? Mello-Roos is also known as the “Community Facilities District Act” and was established in 1982 as a law in California. Mello-Roos is a special property tax (common for new communities within a city) which raises money for public improvements. Some examples of the public improvements could be (streets, water, sewage and drainage, electricity, infrastructure, schools, parks and police protection. Mello-Roos is independent from property tax, therefore it is not affected by the value of the home. Mello-Roos can rise or fall and is not subject to Proposition 13.

Why Should I be Worried about Mello-Roos? If your new home has Mello-Roos you need to look at the amount because you might have to pay more in Mello-Roos than you are in your property taxes. This can be a huge financial burden by itself!

Most new communities have Mello-Roos so if you want a new home in a newer community you will most likely be paying Mello-Roos. Canyon Hills and Tuscany Hills have more reasonable Mello-Roos than a lot of other communities in our area and as long as you know about it beforehand, and are okay with it, they are great areas to live in.

The below data was taken from the public website for the Office of the Treasurer-Tax Collector from Riverside County. The homes picked for the tables below were randomly chosen for each area and each have an assessed value of right around $350,000. Homes in the areas below vary in tax amounts, and the data below should simply be used as a rough average.

The purpose of this data is to provide potential homebuyers quick information on TAXES and MELLO-ROOS for the areas they are interested in. I want to make sure all of my clients are especially aware of the Mello-Roos involved in each area.

If you have any questions about particular areas in the Inland Empire I will get you the information you need.  Please call, text and or email me.  There are a lot of areas in Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee, Lake Elsinore that do not have Mello-Roos, however realize that they are most likely older homes / developments (pre 2000 usually).
