Flood Zone funding comes from your property taxes:
- A percentage of your Basic Property Tax based on your property type and parcel size—approximately $150 for an average Novato home.
- A “Benefit Assessment” added to your property tax bill annually in perpetuity—$9.00 to $37.00 for single family homes and as much as $522 for businesses.
- A new Regional Tax for Flood Control and 18 years—$25,000,000 per year in total from every parcel in the Bay Area.
Find out how much you pay for your tax bill each year. Then decide if it’s enough already.
