What are the impacts of parcel tax change?

By
From page A5 | August 16, 2013 |

The Davis school board’s decision Thursday night to move to a uniform rate of $204 per parcel per year under Measure E will have impacts on some Davis-area property owners, but not others.

For owners of single-family homes, there will be no changes. Single-family homes will be charged $204 per parcel per year, as before.

But owners of multi-unit dwellings may see changes, and the greatest impact could be on duplexes.

Under a uniform rate, an apartment building with 100 units on a single parcel will be charged $204 per year, rather than the $20 per unit annually (for a total of $2,000 for 100 units) that would have been charged under Measure E’s original language.

At the same time, a duplex on a single parcel will now be charged $204 per year under the uniform rate instead of $40 ($20 for each of two units). But if the duplex is on a split lot, then each dwelling could be charged $204 annually.

The switch to a uniform rate for Measure E will not have a dramatic impact on the Davis school district’s budget. The original Measure E language (charging $204 per year for single family homes, and $20 per year for apartments and other multi-unit dwellings) would have generated about $3.2 million annually, according to estimates in Fall 2012, when Measure E went before voters. An analysis in the agenda packet for Thursday night’s school board meeting suggests that under the new uniform rate, Measure E will generate about $3.085 million per year.

The school board’s decision to go with a uniform rate for Measure E does not represent an out-of-court settlement of the legal challenge against Measure E  currently pending in Yolo County Superior Court, which was filed earlier this year by parcel tax opponent Jose Granda and others. Granda confirmed on Thursday that his lawsuit has not been withdrawn.
