Aviara Carlsbad CA Area Mello Roos CFD #1 Tax Extended

Real Estate Agent with Bressi Realty Carlsbad CalBRE 01318292

For those who live in the Aviara area of Carlsbad and have homes built in the last 20 years which is subject to the Mello Roos tax known as CFD #1, you may not have noticed a decrease in your property tax bill this year. And that is a bad thing. The Mello Roos tax was extended, without any warning to my knowledge, and homeowners are paying for it. It also jeapordizes the information presented to buyers by most real estate agents...buyers are making a purchase decision based on how much the Mello Roos taxes are and how long they last.

This continuation apparently authorized by the Carlsbad Unified School District effecively costs each homeowner $9,000 plus interest by adding up the annual fees for the next 15 years. Ouch!

Oh and good luck getting unbiased information regarding how this was allowed or how to dispute it.

Anyone know more about Mello Roos or had a similar experience?

Here's an update on the Carlsbad Unified School District Mello Roos CFD #1 tax. Although the Mello Roos tax was extended, looking at my property tax bill for 2015-16, it seems the amount of the tax has gone down from $644.80 per year to $102.56 per year. While that is good news, I still find it strange homeowners do not get notified of any of these changes.
