$5.8 BILLION INCREASE IN PROPERTY ASSESSMENT ROLL CONFIRMS STRONG REAL ESTATE ACTIVITY IN PLACER COUNTY
Bruce Dear, Placer County Assessor, announced a 15.01 % increase in this year's property assessment roll. Placer County's 2005-06 assessment roll grew to $44.9 billion, with a $5.8 billion increase over last year. For the fifth consecutive year the assessment roll has increased by double digit percentages. The continuing high rate of new construction and appreciating property values are responsible for record breaking growth in the assessment roll.
Once again, Lincoln led Placer County jurisdictions with a 40.69% increase in net assessed value. Assessment information by jurisdiction is as follows:
