  • Taxes vs. Fee for Service

    Have a department that charges a $35.00 yearly fee that is placed on the property owners property tax bill. The owner of the property does have the opportunity to opt out and not pay this fee. This accounts for 90% of our budget. Should this be listed under Taxes or Fees for service?

    Taxes- its basically a fire fee collected through property tax billing just like school and garbage fees are collected; as you said they cannot opt out so its a tax. It all counts into the property tax bill which you don't collect, the city or county collects it and then distributed the money to you.

      I think what he saying is that the owner has the option to opt out. Jeff

        The property owner CAN opt out. There is a 45 day window that they can opt out and not have the dues on the property tax bill.

          Oops my bad, that's what I get for reading before 2nd pot of coffee. In that case I might just call it a fee for service then.
