The most important year to know is 1986 because there was no mello roos prior to 1986. But after that you really need to pull the taxes on teh home to see what the mello roos is (if any) what the special assessments are and what the base tax rate is for the home. Add all three of thos together and you will figure out the annula taxes on the specific home.
Best of luck!
And put in the address to find out exactly what the taxes would be.
You can also click on the Home link to get more information about Riverside County Tax Assessor's office in general.
The zip code will not give you an accurate idea of the property tax. The year built will usually give you an idea to some degree ie: a property built in 1993 will usually have a lower tax rate than one built in let's say 2005. But, if you want an accurate idea of a property's tax rate and assessments, your best bet is to go to the Riverside County Tax Assessor's website. I have listed the information below that should help you with any property you might be interested in.
Go to http://www.treasurer-tax.co.riverside.ca.us/
Run your mouse over "How to Pay Your Taxes" and click on "Review/Pay Taxes Online" in the pop out menu. Click on "Continue to Online Payment ", click on "Start Search", enter property street number and name only in the property address line and click on "submit". The next page will show you the due dates, amount and status of the taxes on the property. Click on "View Tax Info" and it will show you the tax rate and amounts of any special assessments on the property.
If this sight states that the roll is closed, you will not be able to look up the tax amounts. At that time, a call to a Realtor would be your best bet.
I hope this helps you out! Good luck in your search. If I can be of any further service to you, please feel free to contact me.
I just wrote a blog about how some special assesments work and there is a link inside it to another blog I wrote about taxes and special assessments. If you are still unclear on how they work or you have a specific home in mind that you need to know the taxes on, give me a call and I will talk you through how to look it up or email you the taxes.

If you email me the address of the home you are interested in, I will try to figure out the property taxes for you.
If you just want a generalized idea, they are around 1.1 - 2.2% of the purchase price. The first 6 - 12 months they may be higher awaiting the adjustment from the last purchase price. Consideridering you said a home built in 1993 I would guess the towards the lower end. If an assessment of the property is 200,000, then the property taxes would be around 2200 per year but the county tax assessor makes the rule not any of us.

Depending on the tract and when it was built will tell you what the taxes will be based on. Typically in the city of Temecula you start out with 1.03%. The the fees for the parks, trash and lighting are added on. In Starlight Ridge, Villa Avanti and Rancho Vista tracts you are looking at about 1.25% like most of California. Paseo del Sol, Paloma Del Sol, Vintage Hills will be a littlehigher and Crowne, Hill, Morgan Hill and RedHawk higher still.
Please give me a call at (951) 294-7917 with where you are interested in buying and I can let you know the rate. I can show you how to figure it from the tax rolls.
Have a great rest of the weekend.
