Notice of Public Hearing on Tax Increase

Tuesday, September 15, 2020

A public hearing on the proposed tax rate will be held on Tuesday September 15, 2020 at 10:00 AM at in the Double-Height Courtroom on the second floor of the Bexar County Courthouse, 100 Dolorosa Street, Suite 2.01, San Antonio, Texas 78205.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE

A tax rate of $0.301097 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of BEXAR COUNTY.

  • PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.301097 per $100
  • NO-NEW REVENUE TAX RATE $0.299073 per $100
  • VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE $0.322953 per $100
  • DE MINIMIS RATE $0.314619 per $100

The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2020 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for BEXAR COUNTY from the same properties in both the 2019 tax year and the 2020 tax year.

The voter-approval tax rate is the highest tax rate that BEXAR COUNTY may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate, unless the de minimis rate for BEXAR COUNTY exceeds the voter-approval tax rate for BEXAR COUNTY.

The de minimis rate is the rate equal to the sum of the no-new-revenue maintenance and operations rate for BEXAR COUNTY, the rate that will raise $500,000, and the current debt rate for BEXAR COUNTY.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that BEXAR COUNTY is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2020 tax year.

A public hearing on the proposed tax rate will be held on Tuesday September 15, 2020 at 10:00 AM at in the Double-Height Courtroom on the second floor of the Bexar County Courthouse, 100 Dolorosa Street, Suite 2.01, San Antonio, Texas 78205.

The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, BEXAR COUNTY 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 COMMISSIONERS COURT of BEXAR COUNTY at their offices or by attending the public.
