August 17, 2012 - City of La Joya City Tax Rates

2012 Property Tax Rates in City of La Joya
This notice concerns the 2012 property tax rates for City of La Joya. It presents information about three tax rates. Last year's tax rate is the actual tax rate the taxing unit used to determine property taxes last year. This year's effective tax rate would impose the same total taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. This year's rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers start rollback procedures. In each case these rates are found by dividing the total amount of taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable property) with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.

Last year's tax rate:

    Last year's operating taxes                $621,187
    Last year's debt taxes                           $0
    Last year's total taxes                    $621,187        
    Last year's tax base                    $113,937,454        
    Last year's total tax rate                    $0.5452/$100

This year's effective tax rate:

    Last year's adjusted taxes
    (after subtracting taxes on lost property)         $617,680
   ÷ This year's adjusted tax base
    (after subtracting value of new property)         $117,455,180    
   =This year's effective tax rate                 $0.5258/$100
(Maximum rate unless unit publishes notices and holds hearings.)

This year's rollback tax rate:

    Last year's adjusted operating taxes            $617,680
    (after subtracting taxes on lost property and adjusting for any
transferred function, tax increment financing, state criminal justice
mandate, and/or enhanced indigent healthcare expenditures)

   ÷ This year's adjusted tax base                 $117,455,180
   =This year's effective operating rate             $0.5258/$100
    x 1.08=this year's maximum operating rate        $0.5678/$100
    + This year's debt rate                     $0/$100
    = This year's total rollback rate                $0.5678/$100

Statement of Increase/Decrease

If City of La Joya adopts a 2012 tax rate equal to the effective tax rate of $0.5258 per $100 of value, taxes would decrease compared to 2011 taxes by $10,305.
