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

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

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.
