August 12, 2011 - 2011 City of Palmview Property Tax Rates

2011 Property Tax Rates in City of Palmview

This notice concerns the 2011 property tax rates for City of Palmview. 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


Last year's debt taxes


Last year's total taxes


Last year's tax base


Last year's total tax rate


This year's effective tax rate:

(Maximum rate unless unit publishes notices and holds hearings.)

This year's rollback tax rate:

Last year's adjusted operating taxes
(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 total rollback rate
