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.” http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/media/inline/blog/Image/handshake.jpg

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.

You are invited to contact your elected representatives to express your thoughts on the summary of the City and County’s latest proposals for a tax share agreement (updated 3/25/15). Contact a County Supervisor , City Council member,or the City Manager for more discussion. Both the County and City leaders are expected to discuss the topic in public meetings in coming weeks.
