The Mello-Roos Act of 1982 provides a method for local governments to finance public facilities. This legislation allows taxing entities to designate specific areas as “Community Facilities Districts” (CFDs) and, with the approval of two-thirds of the qualified voters, allows these entities to issue bonds and collect special taxes (in the form of direct charges) to finance such projects. The direct charge you pay is used to make the payments of principal and interest on the bonds.
If a Mello-Roos direct charge on the annual property tax bill becomes delinquent, the property may be subject to foreclosure by the levying taxing entity.
