NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE - August 17, 2022

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE

August 17, 2022

A tax rate of $0.695000 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of City of Beaumont.

PROPOSED TAX RATE                   $0.695000 per $100

NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE      $0.637867 per $100

VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE        $0.781362 per $100

The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that City of Beaumont is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2022 tax year.

The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2022 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of Beaumont from the same properties in both the 2021 tax year and the 2022 tax year.

The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that City of Beaumont may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate.

A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON September 13, 2022 AT 1:30 PM AT City Council Chambers, City Hall, 801 Main Street, Beaumont, Texas.

The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, City of Beaumont 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 City Council of City of Beaumont at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE RATES MENTIONED ABOVE CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS: 
Property tax amount= (tax rate) x (taxable value of your property)/100

FOR the proposal:            

Robin Mouton, Mayor

Charles Durio, Council Member 

Mike Getz, Council Member  

Albert "AJ" Turner, Council Member

Randy Feldschau, Council Member   

Taylor Neild, Council Member 

Audwin Samuel, Council Member

AGAINST the proposal: None

PRESENT and not voting: None

ABSENT: None

The 86th Texas Legislature modified the manner in which the voter-approval tax rate is calculated to limit the rate of growth of property taxes in the state.

The following table compares the taxes imposed on the average residence homestead by City of Beaumont lastyear to the taxes proposed to be imposed on the average residence homestead by City of Beaumont this year.
