NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
ON TAX INCREASE
A tax rate of $0.0500 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12.
PROPOSED TAX RATE
$0.0500 per $100
NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE
$0.0498 per $100
VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE
$0.0515 per $100
The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2021 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 from the same properties in both the 2020 tax year and the 2021 tax year.
The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 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 Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 tax year.
A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON September 21, 2021 AT 6:00 PM AT 911 Hollywood St., Houston, TX 77015.
The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 is not required to hold an election at which voters may accept or reject the proposed tax rate. However, you may express your support for or opposition to the proposed tax rate by contacting the members of the Board of Directors of Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.
YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE RATES MENTIONED ABOVE CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
Property tax amount= (tax rate) x (taxable value of your property)/100
