Tax Rate Area
The Tax Rate Area in which the property is located. Special districts, such as schools, cities, and water districts are collecting money for voter approved bonds and special assessments. Because not all of the bond rates are the same, you pay taxes according to which bonds were approved in the area where the property is located.

Parcel or ID Number
This number is used to identify the property. This numbering system was invented by the Assessor's Office and includes the map, book and page number of the parcel.

Statement Number
Nothing mysterious here. This the number of your bill. It is like an invoice number.

Mail Code
This is an area where coding generated by the computer has been placed. When a lender or property owner has requested a large number of bills, they are assigned a code. The Ventura County Computer then groups all the bills with that code together for one mailing to the requestor.
