Why do I have Urban Renewal listed on my tax bill if my property is not inside the district?

Clackamas County Tax Assessor uses a rate (percentage) system to calculate tax. Because of this, the TIF is calculated on all the property in the sponsoring district even though it is only based on the property inside the district boundaries. Since Estacada has an Urban Renewal District, everyone in city limits will see Urban Renewal on their tax bill. Since Clackamas County has urban renewal districts, everyone in Clackamas County will see urban renewal listed on their tax bill. This does not increase your taxes. When the Urban Renewal District ends the taxes will be redistributed to other agencies, like Estacada Fire, Clackamas County Vector Control, Libraries and Port of Portland, etc.
