Public Hearing on the 2019 Tax Year Proposed Property Tax Rate for Bexar County
A tax rate of $0.301097 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of Bexar County. 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 $0.301097 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR’S TAX RATE $0.301097 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE $0.291696 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE $0.340051 per $100
The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for Bexar County from the same properties in both the 2018 tax year and the 2019 tax year.
The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that Bexar County 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
