CITY, TEXAS

A tax rate of $0.52000 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of City of Bridge City, Texas. 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 Bridge City, Texas proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of unfunded mandates from the State and Federal Government Entities..

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.52000 per $100

PRECEDING YEAR'S TAX RATE $0.52000 per $100

EFFECTIVE TAX RATE $0.49169 per $100

ROLLBACK TAX RATE $0.52498 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of Bridge City, Texas 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 Bridge City, Texas may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.
