Direct charges are non-Ad Valorem (non-value related) amounts levied on a per parcel basis which may encompass annual charges for a variety of items to include: voter-approved special taxes (including Mello-Roos Community Facilities Districts), qualified special taxes, benefit/special assessments (including 1915 Act Improvement Districts), Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing installments, charges for services/fees. and delinquent water/sewer bills.
The El Dorado County Auditor-Controller places over 600,000 line items of direct charges on the secured tax roll each year. The direct charges are comprised of 250 different types of direct charges (controlled by a 3-digit code) from over 55 different districts/agencies. Direct charges are due to the Auditor each year by August 10 to be included on the year's secured tax roll. Direct charges may not be placed on supplemental bills pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code.
It is the district’s responsibility to administer its direct charges and determine the method by which billing/collection will occur. Districts may determine that the most efficient method of billing/collection is to direct the Auditor-Controller to perform a ministerial duty to place non-Ad Valorem charges (direct charges) on the secured tax bills. Any over/under/missing charges are the responsibility of the district directing the charge to be placed on the secured tax bills. Direct charges and their corresponding amounts may change with each roll year.
