Harris County ESD No. 12 - Public Notices

Public Notice 1

Notice about 2022 Tax Rates

Property tax rates in Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12.
This notice concerns the 2022 property tax rates for Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12. This notice provides information about two tax rates used in adopting the current tax year's tax rate. The no-new-revenue tax rate would impose the same amount of taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. In most cases, the voter-approval tax rate is the highest tax rate a taxing unit can adopt without holding an election. In each case, these rates are calculated by dividing the total amount of taxes by the current taxable value with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.

This year's no-new-revenue tax rate

$0.0462/$100

This year's voter-approval tax rate

$0.0478/$100

Public Notice 2

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
ON TAX INCREASE


A tax rate of $0.0500 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12.

 

PROPOSED TAX RATE

$0.0500 per $100

 

NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE

$0.0462 per $100

 

VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE

$0.0478 per $100

 

DE MINIMIS RATE

$0.0595 per $100

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 Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 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 Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate, unless the de minimis rate for Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 exceeds the voter-approval rate for Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12.

The de minimis rate is the rate equal to the sum of the no-new-revenue maintenance and operations rate for Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12, the rate that will raise $500,000, and the current debt rate for Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2022 tax year.

A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON September 6, 2022 AT 6:00 PM AT HARRIS COUNTY ESD 12 FIRE DEPARTMENT STATION 14, 911 HOLLYWOOD STREET, HOUSTON, HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the voter-approval tax rate but not greater than the de minimis rate. However, the proposed tax rate exceeds the rate that allows voters to petition for an election under Section 26.075, Tax Code. If Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 adopts the proposed tax rate, the qualified voters of the Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 may petition the Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 to require an election to be held to determine whether to reduce the proposed tax rate. If a majority of the voters reject the proposed tax rate, the tax rate of the Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12 will be the voter-approval tax rate of the Harris County Emergency Service District No. 12.

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:

W. B. Anders

B. Clements

L. Helgesen

D. Proctor

 

 

 

AGAINST the proposal:

 

 

None

 

 

PRESENT and not voting: None

 

 

 

ABSENT: K. Wimbley
