Posted Date: 8/8/2014 8:00 AM
NOTICE OF 2014 TAX YEAR PROPOSED PROPERTY TAX RATE FOR CITY OF CARROLLTON

A tax rate of $0.617875 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of the City of Carrollton. 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. This year’s budget includes no increase in the Property Tax rate.

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.617875 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR'S TAX RATE     $0.617875 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE         $0.581065 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE     $0.618633 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for the City of Carrollton from the same properties in both the 2013 tax year and the 2014 tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that the City of Carrollton 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:

property tax amount = (rate) x (taxable value of your property)/100
