How is my assessment calculated?
Under Board Resolution 02-210 establishing the assessment methodology to be used for assessments adopted under Chapter 94 of the Pasco County Code of Ordinances, assessments are based on the number of Equivalent Residential Units (ERUS) applicable to your property. The ERU methodology is based on the theory that each dwelling unit that is either already built or may be built in the future on a particular piece of property and which has access to the public road(s) that is or are being improved as part of the assessment project area will receive a benefit by being able to utilize the improved road. The more dwelling units permitted by the residential zoning applicable to a particular parcel, the greater the proportionate share of the assessment costs will be apportioned to that particular parcel based on increased potential vehicular use of the public road and the related impact on the wear and tear on the public road.
