NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE - PDF View -Click Here

A tax rate of .61 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of CITY OF MANVEL.

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.610000 per $100

NO-NEW REVENUE TAX RATE $0.584838 per $100 

VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE  $$0.632097 per $100

DE MINIMIS RATE  $0.653983 per $100

The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2020 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for CITY OF MANVEL from the same properties in both the 2019 tax year and the 2020 tax year.


The voter-approval tax rate is the highest tax rate that CITY OF MANVEL may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate, unless the de minimis rate for CITY OF MANVEL exceeds the voter-approval tax rate for CITY OF MANVEL.
The de minimis rate is the rate equal to the sum of the no-new-revenue maintenance and operations rate for CITY OF MANVEL, the rate that will raise $500,000, and the current debt rate for CITY OF MANVEL.


The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that CITY OF MANVEL is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2020 tax year.


A public hearing on the proposed tax rate will be held on September 21, 2020 at 7:00pm at the Manvel City Hall located at 20025 Hwy 6 in Manvel Texas 77578 and via teleconference at 210-469-0207 or toll free 877-257-2190 Conference ID 514 376 792#


The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, CITY OF MANVEL 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 MANVEL at their offices or by attending the public meeting mentioned above.

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE ABOVE RATES CAN

BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:

property tax amount=(tax rate) X (taxable value of your property)/100
