    - Property Taxes (or note if they're billed separately)
    - Developer Subsidy (where it exists)
    - Special Assessment (where it exists)

    Over 9% more than last years. This is the one that kills me, St Thomas is (only) about 5.5% more than last year

    DC Impact

    If possible, can the % increase for front desk staff and housekeeping be included in this information? These are the two areas most impacted by the DC system, so I recommend watching them closely to see whether MVC is payint their fair share of the incremental costs.

    It would be most helpful if all posters could indicate the % increase over last year's budget.

    For mature resorts (which most are), one would expect increases to be in line with inflation - unless there are extenuating circumstances, of course!

    Marriott Monarch 2bedroom/2bath

    2012 Property Tax Fee 2012-01-11 82.31
    2012 Operating Fee 2012-01-11 723.67
    2012 Reserve Fee 2012-01-11 276.28

    Total Charges $1082.26

    2013 Property Tax Fee 2013-01-11 84.78
    2013 Operating Fee 2013-01-11 739.10
    2013 Reserve Fee 2013-01-11 284.58

    Total Charges $1108.46

    $26.20 (2.36%) increase

    Note: estimate was $20 higher so let's hope in other resort estimates they were also high.

    Certainly happy with this minor increase.

    Interesting point but that discussion should take place in the boards and not in this specific 2013 MF thread. :)

    FYI, any owner is able to review the breakout Operating Budgets (which include line item increases over the previous year's budget) of any resort by signing in to his/her my-vacationclub.com account and clicking through to the various resort pages. Click on the "Owners" tab about halfway down each page and look for the Oper Budget link - they're generally posted by Marriott within a month of the Annual Meeting budget approval.

    ** Gentle Reminder ** that this thread is meant for actual 2013 MF's in this format:

    - Resort Name/Unit Type
    - Operating Fee
    - Replacement Reserve
    - Property Taxes (or note if they're billed separately)
    - Developer Subsidy (where it exists)
    - Special Assessment (where it exists)
    - TOTAL
    - Increase/decrease over 2012 MF's whether in dollar or percentage value (because I don't blame anybody who doesn't want to do the math!)

    Thank you all.

    These bills are for a 2BR unit.

    Operating Fee 819.56
    Reserves Fee 465.74
    2013 Total 1,285.30

    2013 property Tax Billed Separately by County $58.68

    2102 Bill
    Operating Fee 755.49
    Reserves Fee 470.32
    2012 Total 1,225.78

    2012 Property Tax Billed Separately by County $76.76

    Difference 2012-2012

    Operating Fee +64.07 +8.4%
    Reserves Fee - 4.58 -1.1%
    Total +59.49 +4.9%

    County Lowered Assessed Value from $4,500 in 2012 to $3,000 in 2013


    DSV II 2013 Bill

    Operating Fee 705.38
    Reserves Fee 366.39
    2013 Total 1,071.77

    2013 property Tax Billed Separately by County $77.72

    2012 Bill
    Operating Fee 667.54
    Reserves Fee 348.94
    2012 Total 1,016.48

    2012 Property Tax Billed Separately by County $76.76

    Difference 2012-2012

    Operating Fee +37.84 +5.7%
    Reserves Fee +17.45 +5.0%
    Total +55.29 +5.4%

    County Increased Assessed Value from $4,500 in 2012 to $4,590 in 2013

    Cannot get a satisfactory answer from county how a unit had assessed value raised 2% while another unit on same property was lowered 33%. They claim Proposition 13 allows them to increase values 2% a year. Yet the same Proposition required them to use the purchase price as the base year and they used a value 3 times higher than purchase price for base year. They say I can pay for appraisal and challenge in court if I like. It is a $20 difference so I guess the county wins!

    Totally happy with the MFs trends so far with our units. Under $2k for a 2BDRM OF in Maui is still a great value.
