I saw an assessment on my property tax bill. What is it for?

There are a number of special assessments from the City of San Rafael that might appear on your property tax bill. Common assessments are:

  • Library parcel tax imposed by Measure D to maintain San Rafael Public Library services
  • Paramedic tax imposed by ballot measure to maintain rapid emergency response times
  • Clean stormwater activity fee imposed by city ordinance to maintain public storm drain facilities
  • Code Enforcement inspection fee imposed by city resolution to fund the inspection of apartments and hotels
