Homeowners throughout San Diego County pay hundreds of dollars in property taxes each year to finance the construction of new schools and the updating of old ones. That money goes primarily to pay off voter-approved bonds. The tax burden can vary widely, depending on such things as property values, number of property owners, amount of the bonds and the kind of deal a school district negotiated on its bonds. Use this map to see the tax rate per $100,000 you're paying in your school district as well as how much a family in a median-value home would have paid last fiscal year.
