Since the non-ad valorem paving assessment appears on the ad valorem tax bill, isn’t it a tax?
The term ‘ad valorem’ refers to taxes, by law; an assessment is not considered a tax. Although the paving assessment will appear on the tax bill, it is an alternate method of notification and collection of a non-ad valorem paving assessment, Since the paving assessment is a non-ad valorem assessment, a property owner who has military and or disability status is not excluded from the paving assessment.
