Beaumont, CA boasts some of the highest mello roose property taxes in all of California if not the US. The mello roos can be as high as $4,200/year on some homes (this doesn't not include your regular taxes - add that in and they are paying $7,100 on a $200k assesment and most of the areas in Beaumont increase coumpounding every year by a minimum of 2%. I would say the average homeowner who buys a home built after 2004 pays roughly $3,000/ a year in mello roos (not including regular property tax) and these mello roos costs are scheduled to increase every year by at least 2%. Most of the bonds last 30 years, but the city of Beaumont will charge a mello roose service fee ontop of the mello roos that will last 50 years. This extra mello roos fee increases with CPI aka inflation ontop of the 2% hike every year.
Here is a basic break down of the mello roos by major development.

FYI the Mello Roos out here is formally referred to as CFDs ( Communiy Facilities Districts )

Hi Chatran,

If you truly want to know how to accurately estimate your property tax for an individual property the process for doing so is detailed here: http://www.trulia.com/blog/steve_ornellas_mba_re_mastersgri/…

You will need to access the specific tax information for the property you are considering, which for Beaumont is the Riverside County Tax Assessors site: https://taxpayments.co.riverside.ca.us/Search.aspx

Best, Steve

Hi Chatran,
The mello roos rate depends on the subdivision, the lentgth of the term of the "bond" and when it began. From most the subdivisions that I have encountered in Beaumont, it can range from an additional 1-1.5% in addition to the normal property taxes. One saving grace with mello roos, it is a tax. That means it can be taken as a deduction for property taxes, versus a high HOA dues, which are not deductable. I would be happy to help you find a newer home in an area that doesn't have the higher Mello Roos and HOAs which are typical for some of the newer areas in Beaumont. There are great newer homes available without these fees. Feel free to contact me by
my link on Trulia, or ToniAnderson@Tarbell.com.

The City Manager of Beaumont made it very clear at our Hovanian development tha Mello-Roos is an ASSESSMENT, thus not deductible. It was a slide in his PowerPoint presentation.
