Poway Unified Kids Can’t Attend New School Because Parents Didn’t Pay For It

LaTyBr: Boy do you get down to the truth! The facts do not create the sensationalization for a story that the "investigative" reporter needs to have in order to grab readers' attention....

It is interesting that the "investigative" reporter does not "investigate" what other public agencies are doing with their special assessment dollars.... There are a heck of a lot of them out there.

Guess you have to dis the best K-12 school district in Southern California in order to get white space!

I know one thing. My respect for KPBS has deteriorated extensively. I will never contribute to them again and will suggest to all of my friends and neighbors to do the same. What a waste of the funds that they have contributed!

Homeowners Overcharged Thousands In Special Property Taxes

Earl_Lee

All I can tell you is that Del Sur is Poway Unified CFD No. 14. The property tax bills for Del Sur (CFD No. 14) do not have any CFD No. 4 on them.

It is good that you put the map up so the residents of Del Sur will be able to confirm that this is NOT their CFD 14.

Thanks for clarifying visually.

Two important reasons:

1) Because reporters/investigators misrepresent everything you tell them... Just like the headline --- "Homeowners Overcharged Thousands...." one homeowner so far!

2) It is not the public's job to do their job. Reporters/investigators are great at getting the public to do their investigating for them and then turn on those that provide accurate information by misrepresenting the facts

Thanks for the link to Prop 13. Your CFD information is still incorrect. Del Sur is CFD No. 14; not CFD No. 4.

What I would find valuable to taxpayers is if you would compare people's total tax bills; not just Mellow Roos taxes. Just what are they paying? Have you compared the difference that taxpayers are paying because of Prop 13? What does the person pay next door that has been residing in their home since 1980 and hasn't had their AV increased compared to the person that just purchased the same home and is paying taxes based on current market rate?

By the way - you really need to do a better fact check. I do live in the community and Del Sur is NOT Black Mountain Ranch. Del Sur is a distinct group of homes in CFD No. 14

KPBS. You might want to verify your information. Black Mountain Ranch Village is not in Del Sur. These are two difference Mello Roos Districts. Del Sur does not have a City CFD overlay.

Do You Pay Extra Property Taxes? Mello-Roos: Who's Paying What (Video)

I reiterate. Potential home purchasers have a choice to buy in areas with no Mello Roos. Of course those areas generally are not to the standard they are looking for in community, education, public services (that the developer is obligated to provide prior to pulling one building permit).

Fair? These people have a choice to not pay Mello-Roos. They just don't purchase a house that has that tax. Of course, that means they will probably not have the upgraded, services, schools, etc. that come along with the additional debt.

I don't think any of these people are being forced to purchase homes in these areas....are they?
