LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 892, as amended, Daly. Parcel taxes.
Existing law requires the Board of Equalization to annually report to the Governor the assessed value of a state-assessed and locally assessed real and personal property in each county, as specified; information concerning other taxes that the board administers, and any further information and suggestions as the board deems proper.
This bill would additionally require the board to annually report specified information relating to the imposition of locally assessed parcel taxes, including, among other things, the type and rate of a parcel tax and the number of parcels subject to or exempt from the parcel tax.

Existing law authorizes local agencies to impose special taxes in the form of parcel taxes.

This bill would require the legislative body of a local agency that proposes to impose any parcel tax upon real property to adopt an ordinance or resolution that establishes a standard calculation method for all parcel taxes imposed by the local agency on or after January 1, 2014.
