Notice About 2021 Tax Rates

Property Tax Rates in Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14

This notice concerns the 2021 property tax rates for Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14. This notice provides information about two tax rates used in adopting the current tax year's tax rate.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE

A tax rate of $0.1000 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14.


PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.1000 per $100
NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE $0.0956 per $100
VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE $0.0990 per $100
DE MINIMIS RATE $0.1948 per $100

The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2021 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 from the same properties in both the 2020 tax year and the 2021 tax year.

The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate, unless the de minimis rate for Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 exceeds the voter-approval rate for Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14.

The de minimis rate is the rate equal to the sum of the no-new-revenue maintenance and operations rate for Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14, the rate that will raise $500,000, and the current debt rate for Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 tax year.

A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON August 23, 2021 at 7:00 PM at the HOA Office, 25610 Timberlakes Drive, Spring TX.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the voter-approval tax rate but not greater than the de minimis rate and does not exceed the rate that allows voters to petition for an election under Section 26.075, Tax Code. If Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 adopts the proposed tax rate, the Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 is not required to hold an election so that voters may accept or reject the proposed tax rate and the qualified voters of the Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 may not petition the Montgomery County Emergency Service District No. 14 to require an election to be held to determine whether to reduce the proposed tax rate.

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE RATES MENTIONED ABOVE CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:

  2020 2021 Change/strong>
Total tax rate (per $100 of value) $0.1000 $0.1000 increase of 0.0000, or 0.00%
