From Texas Association of Counties 08/01/2018:  Elected Officials are asked to share this Website with Constituents:  

www.ProtectPropertyTaxPayers.org

We all know that unfunded mandates add billions of dollars to the bottom line on property tax bills, but most tax payers aren't aware of how the practice affects them. You can help educate your constituents by sharing www.ProtectPropertyTaxPayers.org, with your colleagues at the courthouse, and in regular conversations with your residents.  More than just a website, ProtectPropertyTaxPayers.org can help connect concerned citizens with their legislators.
This brand new site takes readers through a quick overview of what an unfunded mandate is and how it affects property taxes. The site then provides visitors the opportunity to contact their legislators in just a few clicks.
Suggested email text helps set a respectful tone for users as they begin to prepare their personalized remarks to their representatives. It also includes some talking points to help them be direct in making their point.

This budget will raise more total property taxes than last year’s budget by $1,511,737 or 9.79%, and of that amount $587,954 is tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year.

A tax rate of $ 0.4081 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of County of Gillespie.  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 County of Gillespie proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of funding expenditures for maintenance and operations and to pay the increased cost of state mandated services.

 

  PROPOSED TAX RATE                      $ 0.4081 per $100

  PRECEDING YEAR’S TAX RATE         $ 0.3999 per $100

  EFFECTIVE TAX RATE                       $ 0.3870 per $100

  ROLLBACK TAX RATE                       $ 0.4292 per $100

 

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for County of Gillespie from the same properties in both the 2017 tax year and the 2018 tax year.

 

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that County of Gillespie may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.
