The 2017 Tax Roll

A little over a month ago, I signed the 2017 preliminary tax roll for Orange County that has a total market value of $172.6 billion. That’s up from last year’s historic high of $159 billion. That’s an amazing amount of growth that we’ve witnessed in just one year’s time.

This year's tax roll features $6.1 billion in residential market value growth, $3.1 billion in new construction, over 450,000 parcels, and more than 61,000 tangible personal property accounts.

My office is responsible for not only maintaining the tax roll but inspecting thousands of parcels in the county, and ensuring that exemptions and classifications of property are just and correct. I also ensure that each of the county's 13 municipalities receives information from the tax roll to set their millage rates and budgets for the next fiscal year.

I’m proud of the work that we do in our office and the expertise that we offer to our residents. To give you a peek into the hard work that we do, our office has successfully defended 99.5% of our valuations at the Value Adjustment Board (VAB). That gives us a top ranking in the state among our peers.*

If you’d like more information on Orange County’s market value and the growth this county is experiencing, I implore you to register for the 2017 State of Orange County Real Estate that’s happening on August 24th from 5 pm - 8 pm. I’ll go into more detail about what’s driving growth in our county and what to look forward to in the future. I hope to see you there!

Yours in service,
