Beginning January 1, 2020

The 86th Texas Legislature modified the manner in which the voter-approval tax rate is calculated to limit the rate of growth of property taxes in the state.

Truth-in-taxation is a concept embodied in the Texas Constitution that requires local taxing units to make taxpayers aware of tax rate proposals and to afford taxpayers the opportunity to roll back or limit tax increases. Property owners have the right to know about increases in their properties' appraised value and to be notified of the estimated taxes that could result from the new value.

Calculate Taxes: take the Taxable Value, divide by 100, and multiplying the result by the tax rate. Tax Amount = Taxable Value/100*Tax Rate

Key Terms

No-New-Revenue-Rate: A calculated rate that would provide the taxing unit with approximately the same revenue that it received last year from property that was taxed in both years. This does not include additional revenue from new construction.

Proposed Rate: The tax rate that the taxing unit is considering for adoption.

Voter Approval Rate: This is the maximum tax increase allowed by law without triggering an election. It is calculated by taking last year’s maintenance and operations rate, adding 8%, and adding the unit’s debt rate (interest and sinking (I&S) fund rate).

Adopted Rate: The tax rate that the taxing unit voted to adopt for the current year.
