4 Useful Definitions: Ad Valorem Tax/Revenue: A tax (and the resultant revenue) levied on the taxable value of real property. Assessed Value: Valuation assigned to real property by the Property Appraiser as a basis for levying taxes. Budget: A financial plan of operations which matches anticipated revenues with proposed expenditures. It represents the legal authorization for the County to expend funds during the relevant fiscal period. Capital Improvement Plan: A plan for capital expenditures to be incurred each year (for typically five years) to meet anticipated capital needs. Charter County: A Florida county wherein local voters have the power to adopt a charter (formal, written document that confers powers, duties or privileges on the county) to govern the county. They must be approved, along with any amendments, by the voters of the county. Brevard is one of twenty Charter counties. General Government Fund: The County s primary operating fund which generally does not have the inherent restrictions imposed on other funds Millage Levy: The tax rate applied to the taxable valuation to determine property taxes. A mill represents $1 of tax for each $1,000 or value. Reserves: Expenditure dollar amount set aside for specific purposes such as future expenses, capital acquisition, or in accordance with statute or contractual obligations. Taxable Value: The valuation of real property used for computing taxes to be levied. It represents the assessed valuation less any exclusions or exemptions allowed by law. TRIM (Truth in Millage): State law designed to inform taxpayers which governmental entity is responsible for the taxes levied and the amount of tax levied by entity. COUNTY MILLAGE RATES: Property Tax Revenue is calculated by multiplying the taxable property value by the applicable millage levy and then dividing by 1,000. For example: If your home as an assessed value of $150,000 with homestead exemptions of $50,000, your General Revenue tax is $ $150,000 - $50,000 = $100,000; $100,000 X = $454,970; $454,970 1,000 = $ Tax District FY 2016 FY 2015 % Change COUNTYWIDE General Revenue (2.81%) Library District (2.88%) Mosquito Control (2.92%) Environ Endangered Land (2.69%) UNINCORPORATED Fire Control (2.51%) Law Enforcement (2.38%) Aggregated Road & Bridge (2.57%) Aggregated Parks & Rec %

5 The Charter Cap Brevard is the only Florida county with a Charter provision that does not permit a millage rate which causes the ad valorem revenue to increase over the prior year budgeted revenue by more than the lesser of: (1) 3%, or (2) the percentage change in the Consumer Price Index from the preceding calendar year. This is referred to as the Charter Cap. Effect of the Charter Cap on the General Revenue Mill General Revenue Millage Rates for Neighboring Counties County FY 2015 FY 2016 Change Millage Millage Brevard % Indian River % Orange % Osceola % Seminole % Volusia % Cumulative Effect of the Charter Cap on General Revenue Receipts FY FY FY FY Taxable Property $24,623,285,124 $25,763,338,328 $28,019,599,988 $29,696,507,254 GR Millage Rate Budgeted Revenue $120,809,224 $124,279,768 $131,170,955 $135,110,199 Revenue/ Unchanged Millage (4.9063) $120,809,224 $126,402,667 $137,472,563 $145,699,974 Difference $0 $2,122,899 $6,301,608 $10,589,774 Cum Difference $0 $2,122,899 $8,424,507 $19,014,282
