Orland and County Work on Tax Share
As part of annexing land from the County to the City, the two local government agencies must agree to a share of the property tax revenues. The agreement terms vary from county to county. State law requires that a county’s losses be mitigated – that is, the annexation should not cause the county to lose property tax it needs to provide services. This is sometimes called “revenue neutrality.”
Tax revenues are needed by the city to provide services at the annexation project site and throughout the city. Orland estimates that its projected revenues from this annexation will be similar to the costs required to serve the project area.
Updated April 6, 2015: County Supervisors approved the draft agreement March 31 and City Council approved the agreement April 6. Most property tax from the developed annexation area would go to the County, most sales tax to the City. LAFCO will review the annexation sometime in June 2015.
