Community Facilities District
Community Facilities District 89-1
The City of Placentia contracts with Willdan Financial Services (WFS) to administer the Mello-Roos Community Facilities District No. 89-1. Your most recent property tax bill (September 2014) reflected an error made by WFS on the Mello-Roos tax for your District. We apologize for this mistake and as a result, a corrected tax bill will be issued to you from the Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office the week of December 15, 2014.
Property owners must pay the first installment of the most recent property tax bill by the December 10, 2014 due date. The corrected tax bill will only reflect the correction to your Mello-Roos tax and will be due thirty (30) days after receipt.
