A tax rate of $0.88681 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of CITY OF KINGSVILLE. 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.

The governing body of CITY OF KINGSVILLE proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of quality of life improvements, which include increase to the Fire Department Personnel and increased focus on the maintenance of our City Parks.

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.88681 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR’S TAX RATE $0.84220 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE $0.84299 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE $0.88682 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for CITY OF KINGSVILLE from the same properties in both the 2016 tax year and the 2017 tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that CITY OF KINGSVILLE 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:
