Treasurer-Tax Collector Releases List of OC’s Top Ten Property Taxpayers

By OC Supervisor Todd Spitzer (Portions courtesy of the OC Treasurer-Tax Collector)

Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector Shari L. Freidenrich released the list of the Top Ten Property Taxpayers for Fiscal Year 2013-14.

“I am appreciative of the hard work that Treasurer-Tax Collector Freidenrich’s office does in keeping track of these vast property taxes,” Supervisor Todd Spitzer said. “I thank all our taxpayers large and small who fund vital government services, such as public safety, roads, and education.”

Both the Irvine Company and Time Warner Cable remain as the #1 secured and unsecured taxpayers from the prior year. Walt Disney Parks & Resorts US and So Cal Edison Company continued to hold the #2 and #3 secured tax spots. Cox Communications, Inc. continued to hold the #2 unsecured tax spot, while Broadcom Corp. moved up to the #3 unsecured tax spot. Current year secured tax collections are on track to meet or exceed the Fiscal Year 2012-13 secured collection rate of 98.9%. This collection rate is the highest rate found recorded for the County.

Secured taxes are those assessed against real property (e.g. land, buildings). Unsecured taxes are assessed against property that can be relocated and is not real estate (e.g. planes, boats).

The top 10 lists in both the secured and unsecured categories in the County of Orange are as follows:

    How about a list of the top 10 NON-taxpayers, also? (E.G. largest properties that WOULD be in the top -10 group above, except for technical exemption due to non-profit status, etc – Orange County’s version of the NFL’s technical Tax Exemption)
