NOTICE OF PROPOSED PROPERTY TAX RATE
Posted Date: 8/16/2017
A tax rate of $0.497500 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of City of College Station. This rate exceeds the lower of the effective or rollback tax rate, and state law requires that two public hearings be held by the governing body before adopting the proposed tax rate.

The governing body of City of College Station proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of additional positions, including public safety, related training & equipment; infrastructure maintenance; equipment, professional services, maintenance & supplies, pay plan/benefits; and debt service for transportation, facility, technology, & capital equipment projects.

PROPOSED TAX RATE - $0.497500 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR'S TAX RATE - $0.472500 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE - $0.444262 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE - $0.517358 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of College Station from the same properties in both the 2016 tax year and the 2017 tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that City of College Station may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE ABOVE RATES CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
