City of Mesa CFD
The City of Mesa currently has only one Community Facilities District called Eastmark, which is located in zip code 85212. For a map of Eastmark, please refer to http://www.eastmark.com/hub/east-vicinity-map/.

 

What is a Community Facility District?
A Community Facility District (CFD) is set up by local government agencies as a means of obtaining community funding for public works, services, improvements and development. Funding is used for building parks, roadways, sewer, water storm drain, signage, street light, landscape and related improvements.

 

What are these CFD charges on my property tax bill?
The Assessment charge relates to the Community Facility District (CFD) that was set up by the property developer and the City of Mesa to provide funding for improvements within the planned community development areas referenced above. There are two charges on your Maricopa County property tax bill.

The first is a $3500 assessment per each property, which is amortized over 25 years. This assessment may be paid off in one lump sum if desired. If is not paid at once, then it will be included in the property tax each year, along with applicable interest charges.

The second is a combination of the Operating and Maintenance charge allocated to each property, currently at a rate of $.30 per $100 net secondary valuation, and the GO Bond charge allocated to each property, currently at a rate of $3.1397 per $100 net secondary valuation. These charges are listed as “Eastmark CFD No. 1” on your Maricopa County property tax bill and will be evaluated and assessed each year.

How do I pay for the Assessment Area charge and/or the CFD charge on my property tax bill?
Remit your payment for the amount charged on your property tax bill along with your Maricopa County property tax. Payments are payable to the Maricopa County Assessor address referenced on your bill. If you property tax is remitted through your mortgage escrow account, you will not need a separate payment for the CFD charges. The Maricopa County Assessor will in turn remit the portion related to the Assessment Area and the CFD charge to Eastmark Facilities District c/o the City of Mesa.

 

Can I pay off the entire assessment amount early?
The combination Operations & Maintenance charges and GO Bond charges are allocated to maintaining the common areas indefinitely, and are an additional annual tax based on the value of the property. These charges cannot be paid off.

The Special Assessment (SA) charge is a set amount plus applicable interest. If you choose to payoff this amount early, you will need to obtain a payoff quote from the City of Mesa. Applicable interest through the next bond payment date will be applied. Administrative fees may also apply.
