Taxes, no death

San Diego County is out with a list of its top property taxpayers for fiscal year 2014 and, as usual, the “winner” is utility behemoth San Diego Gas & Electric, paying a handsome $87,007,049. Another big public utility, Southern California Edison, comes in second with $35,875,444. Third is the Orange County real-estate holding outfit the Irvine Company, at $19,995,798.

Qualcomm, the cell-phone giant founded by La Jollan Irwin Jacobs, stymied of late in San Diego’s political power game by the defeat of his favored mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher, is fourth, at a hefty $18,573,859. Other deep pockets on the list: 11th-ranked Conrad Prebys Trust, $5,698,590, and Fashion Valley Mall LLC, right behind in 12th place, at $5,638,722.
