Direct charges are flat amounts levied by various taxing entities on a per parcel basis. They are for services or benefits provided directly to a property and are non-ad valorem (not based on value). The Auditor-Controller performs the ministerial duty of placing these charges on the annual tax bills. Each year, in accordance with state law, the levying entity provides our office with a listing of the parcels and amounts to be charged, along with a resolution from their Board.
The calculation of the charges is the responsibility of the levying entity. Please contact them directly with any questions. The phone number for each is shown on your tax bill. View a complete current-year list of direct charges (PDF).
