August 29, 2017: The documents below have been updated.
A tax rate of $0.710000 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of City of Beaumont. This rate exceeds the lower of the effective or rollback tax rate, and state law requires that two public hearings be held by the governing body before adopting the proposed tax rate.
The governing body of City of Beaumont proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of funding city departments and operations in the General Fund.
The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of Beaumont from the same properties in both the 2016 tax year and the 2017 tax year.
The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that City of Beaumont may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.
YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE ABOVE RATES CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
