Notice of 2015 Proposed Property Tax Rate for City of Georgetown

Jul 31, 2015

A tax rate of $0.434000 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of City of Georgetown. 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.

Proposed Tax Rate $0.434000 per $100
Preceding Year’s Tax Rate $0.434000 per $100
Effective Tax Rate $0.417150 per $100
Rollback Tax Rate $0.442221 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of Georgetown from the same properties in both the 2014 tax year and the 2015 tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that City of Georgetown 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
