When Will the Mello Roos Tax End and What Does it Cover?
A common question I am asked regarding Placer County homes that have Mello Roos taxes is, "When will the mello roos tax end and what does it cover?".
In the past, when I was asked this question I typically instructed people to call the county accessors main office or visit the county offices in Auburn.
I have now discovered a resource that should allow home owners or interested home buyers to contact the person who is directly responsible for the particular assessment at the county.
On Placer County's website there is a Tax Bill Search Tool, which I have written about in the past.
This tool allows you to look up the tax bill and an itemized list of direct charges for a property, using the properties parcel number.
In addition to this tool, Placer County has now added a link to a .pdf document that has the contact number for each direct charge, including Mello Roos.
You can access the current list from the Tax Bill Search page, or you can view the 2007/2008 version by clicking Placer County Mello Roos Contact List.
If you want to know when a Mello Roos payment expires or what it covers, you can now find out by contacting the designated person on the list, rather calling the calling the counties main number or visiting thier offices, which may or may not lead you to the correct person.
I appreciate that the county has gone out of their way to put this type of information online. It goes a long way into helping home buyers make informed decisions about where to purchase their next home.
Hopefully they will continue to move as many of their public records and services online as possible.
