This notice concerns the 2017 property tax rates for El Paso County Emergency Services District # 2.  It presents information about three tax rates.  Last year's tax rate is the actual tax rate the taxing unit used to determine property taxes last year.  This years effective tax rate would impose the same total taxes as last year if you compared properties taxed in both years.  This year's rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers start rollback procedures.  In each case these rates are found by dividing the total amount of taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable property) with adjustments as required by state law.  The rates are given per $100 of property value. 

Last year's tax rate

Last year's operating taxes                                                                                              $1,212,912
Last year's debt taxes $1,815,563
Last year's total taxes $3,028,475
Last year's tax base $3,279,380,394
Last year's total tax rate      $0.092349/$100

This year's effective tax rate:

Last year's adjusted taxes (after subtracting taxes on lost property)                                   $3,021,427
Divide this year's adjusted tax base (after subtracting value of new property) $3,421,711,459
= This year's effective tax rate     


(Maximum rate unless unit publishes notices and holds hearings.) 

This year's rollback tax rate:

Last year's adjusted operating taxes (after subtracting taxes on lost property and adjusting for any transferred function, tax increment financing, state criminal justice mandate, and/or enhanced indigent health care expenditures)                                                                         $1,209,905
Divide this year's adjusted tax base $3,421,711,459 
= This year's effective operating rate $0.035360/$100
x 1.08 = this year's maximum operating rate $0.038188/$100
+ This year's debt rate $0.052670/$100
= This year's total rollback rate
