Pulte Homes is Manteca’s largest payer of property tax.
The firm holds a substantial number of unfinished lots as well as a few completed homes in the 1,460-lot Del Webb at Woodbridge on Union Road north of Lathrop Road.
The home building firm owns 1.41 percent of the city’s 2009 taxable assessed property value. The San Joaquin County Assessor’s Office put Manteca’s 2009 assessed property value at $4,815,409,883. That means the Del Webb project lots still owned by Del Webb are worth almost $7 million.
The $4.8 billion figure is a 14.7 percent drop from the 2008 assessed value in Manteca.
The statistic involving the city’s principal property taxpayers appears in the comprehensive annual financial report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2009 that was released last week.
Deutsche Bank National Trust Co. was second at .69 percent by the fact they are the holder of a Manteca subdivision that is being developed. Third on the list was the 298-unit Paseo Villas Luxury Apartments at Atherton Drive and Van Ryn Avenue that accounted for .67 percent of all assessed value.
The audit also lists top redevelopment agency property taxpayers. It underscores the impact that employment centers, distribution centers, and retail operations have on the municipal budget.
