 2017 Property Tax Rates in MIDDLE TRINITY GROUND WATER


This notice concerns the 2017 property tax rates for MIDDLE TRINITY GROUND WATER. It
presents information about three tax rates. Last year's tax rate is the actual tax rate the taxing unit
used to determine property taxes last year. This year's effective tax rate would impose the same total
taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. This year's rollback tax rate is the
highest tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers start rollback procedures. In each case these
rates are found by dividing the total amount of taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable
property) with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.
Last year's tax rate:
Last year's operating taxes $876,767
Last year's debt taxes $0
Last year's total taxes $876,767
Last year's tax base $7,828,276,786
Last year's total tax rate $0.0112/$100
This year's effective tax rate:
Last year's adjusted taxes
(after subtracting taxes on lost property)
$871,435
This year's adjusted tax base
(after subtracting value of new property)
$8,076,203,033
=This year's effective tax rate $0.0107/$100
(Maximum rate unless unit publishes notices and holds hearings.)
This year's rollback tax rate:
Last year's adjusted operating taxes
(after subtracting taxes on lost property and adjusting for any
transferred function, tax increment financing, state criminal justice
mandate, and/or enhanced indigent healthcare expenditures)
$871,435
This year's adjusted tax base $8,076,203,033
=This year's effective operating rate $0.0107/$100
x 1.08=this year's maximum operating rate $0.0115/$100
+ This year's debt rate $0/$100
= This year's total rollback rate $0.0115/$100
