Town Of Moraga

Where do your Property Tax Dollars Go?

Do you know how much of your property tax comes back to the Town? 
Would you be shocked to learn that for every $1,000 of property taxes you pay, only $53 comes to the Town?  This money is what pays for the Town services – police, recreational activities and events, streets and parks maintenance!  Of that $53, only $0.60 is available to patch local streets and roads. Where does the rest of your money go?  The chart below shows the distribution of property taxes collected. The County money funds the libraries, flood control, mosquito abatement, and general services.  The School money is shared among an array of schools in the area, as well as the Community College.  The Special Districts include fire, water, sewer, and the park district, as well as several smaller apportionments.
