NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE
A tax rate of $0.607987 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of CITY OF BROWNSVILLE.
PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.607987 per $100 NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE $0.549227 per $100 VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE $0.607987 per $100
The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2023 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for CITY OF BROWNSVILLE from the same properties in both the 2022 tax year and the 2023 tax year.
The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that CITY OF BROWNSVILLE may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate.
The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that CITY OF BROWNSVILLE is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2023 tax year.
A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON August 15, 2023 at 5:00 PM., in the Commission Chambers, on the Second Floor of the Brownsville City Hall – Old Federal Building, located at 1001 East Elizabeth Street,
