FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER NEWSPAPER — JUNE 26, 2013 –
Yolo County’s property tax roll was valued at over $20 billion for the first time since 2008, reports Assessor Joel Butler.
“The improving real estate market and thriving agricultural economy, coupled with new construction and changes of ownership (which trigger reappraisal) increased this year’s roll to $20,475,478,048 of taxable value – a 4.16 percent increase over the prior year,” said a statement from Butler’s office.
“All areas of the county experienced increases in assessed value,” added the tax assessor’s statement. “Davis had the largest increase for a city at 5.75 percent; Woodland had the least, at 1.88 percent; with Winters at 3.85 percent and West Sacramento at 3.83 percent. The unincorporated areas of Yolo County grew by 4.58 percent, reflecting the strength of rural and agricultural properties.”
Recently assessed property values will be available for public view by July 12 at http://www.yolocounty.org/index.aspx?page=1603.
