Know Your County Budget Basics
Have you ever wondered how the programs and services you enjoy are funded? The property taxes you pay, also known as ad valorem taxes, along with miscellaneous fees, transfers and fund balances and sales tax comprise what is known as the General Fund budget. The General Fund budget is approximately $1 billion dollars and represents about 25 percent of the County’s overall $4.1 billion budget.
The collected property tax revenues for FY15 are allocated to fund several areas. The Broward Sheriff’s Office is allocated 46 percent of total property tax revenues. The Broward County Commission has authority over 37 percent of property tax revenues which are allocated to Parks and Libraries (10 percent), Human Services (7 percent), Transit (3 percent), and Other Programs (17 percent). The remaining 17 percent is allocated to the Property Appraiser and Supervisor of Elections (3 percent), required mandates (9 percent) and consolidated dispatch (5 percent).
