Texas law requires a number of public notices to inform taxpayers about local property taxes. Links to all required notices are provided below. If the link is not working, it will be updated as the forms/information become available.
For 2020, the City Council has directed Staff to prepare a budget that maintains the 2019 tax rate. The City Council controls the rate charged for property taxes, but does not control the appraised value of properties. For 2020, approximately $10 million in new construction was added to the tax rolls and values increased. Even with the Council's efforts to keep the tax rate the same, Texas law requires that we notice as though there will be a tax increase, because we will receive more property tax revenue. If you have specific questions, please contact the City Manager.
