Notes

  1. Real Property Taxes:  The increase is primarily the result of the budgeted increase in the real estate tax rate for transportation.
  2. Personal Property Taxes/Motor Vehicle License:  The FY 2012 vehicle assessments included 5,000 more cars than the FY 2011 billing.  The resulting increase in revenue of approximately $1.0 million has been included in the estimates for FY 2013 budget revenues.   
  3. Communication Taxes:  The decrease is primarily attributable to a one time refund issued to a large wireless provider who collected taxes on data services for various wireless devices used by their customers.  The total amount of the refund including interest was $12.9 million, and the City’s share was $0.3 million.
  4. Business License Taxes:  The decrease is a result of the variable timing of tax payments.
  5. Recordation Tax:  The increase is primarily the result of the sale and refinancing of a few large commercial properties.
  6. Other Local Taxes: The decrease of 46 percent is a result of the variable timing of quarterly payments for vehicle rental taxes.
  7. Federal Government: The decrease primarily represents the timing of payments for the Federal Prisoner Per Diem.
  8. Charges for Service:  The increase is the result of a budgeted increase in meter fees (to $1.75/hour) implemented with the installation of the new multi-space meters mid-year in FY 2011.
