FROM THE DESK OF THE CITY MANAGER

I would like to make you aware of a postcard from the Tarrant Appraisal District you should receive starting this weekend concerning Texas Senate Bill #2 which was approved during the last State legislative session in 2019. Texas Senate Bill #2, known as the Texas Property Tax Reform and Transparency Act of 2019, requires all taxing entities to post their proposed tax rates in a manner that is accessible to the public. The goal of this new procedure is to inform taxpayers and assure that the tax rate used to calculate their taxes is clear and understandable. We posted the proposed tax rate on our website (www.wstx.us) but I also wanted to make it available to you here. Please keep in mind that this tax rate is the proposed rate and has not been reviewed or voted on by elected officials. 

2019-2020                                              PROPOSED 2020-2021
Property Tax Rate: $0.732245/100        Property Tax Rate: $0.745200/100

This proposed tax rate represents an increase of just over one penny (the exact increase is $.012955). If you would like to speak on this proposed tax rate your first opportunity will be at the upcoming August 5th City Council ZOOM meeting. That meeting’s agenda and the ZOOM meeting information can be found at: https://www.wstx.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_08042020-392

The postcard you will be receiving in the mail from the Tarrant Appraisal District will give you instructions on how to access their website that will have more tax information. It is my hope that these new sources of information will help the citizens of White Settlement better understand your taxes.

Thank you,
Jeffrey J. James
City Manager, City of White Settlement
