Finding a Property Tax Bill in Yolo County, California

Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty CA license 01873017

When working with clients in Woodland and Davis in Yolo County I have to point out to them that their property tax bills are going to vary greatly depending on where they choose to buy a house. California's prop. 13 limited the actual property tax rate on real estate but Mello Roos assessments are common on newer homes. Especially in some of the newer areas in Woodland Mello Roos assessments can nearly double the property tax bill on a house.

Fortunately property tax info is on line in Yolo County. If you go to this website you can enter an house address and pull up current and past tax info. It is best to *not* put in the entire address of a house, but rather the street number followed by part of the street name. For example, if you enter 1944 Johnson Circle (a made-up address) you get no results because the tax records are "1944 Johnson Cir". But if you enter "1944 Johnson" or even "1944 Jo" you get the results you are looking for.
