Yolo County’s annual tax roll topped $21 billion for the first time, County Assessor Joel Butler announced Tuesday.
Butler credited an improving real estate market and “thriving agricultural economy,” coupled with new construction and changes of ownership for increasing this year’s tax roll to $21,818,600,599 of taxable value, a 6.56 percent increase over the prior year.
All areas of the county experienced increases in assessed value, Butler said, with Woodland seeing the largest increase at 9.47 percent.
Davis had the smallest increase at 4.49 percent, while Winters grew 6.15 percent and West Sacramento 7.14 percent. The unincorporated areas of Yolo County grew by 6.11 percent, reflecting the strength of rural and agricultural properties, according to Butler. Increases in commodity prices and land rents are reflected in higher Williamson Act values.
“While the county’s assessed value increase is important information,” Butler said, “it remains secondary to my goal of providing Yolo County taxpayers with fair and equal treatment under California state law.”
