During the 2012-13 fiscal year, Butte County billed approximately $190 million in secured property taxes, which represents the 1% tax on the assessed value of property, plus voter approved school bonds and special direct assessments. The taxes collected were distributed among several local agencies that share this source of revenue. Schools received the largest percentage of property taxes followed by the County, redevelopment agencies (RDAs), cities and special districts. The bar chart below illustrates the approximate percentage of property taxes distributed per agency. The distribution figures for the current fiscal year will be posted in January 2014.
