I would like to take a minute and explain to everyone about the proposed tax rate for the 2013-2014 budget year.
Many people have asked if the City of Tomball is raising taxes again. Due to the way that we have to publish our Legal Notices in the newspapers, it sounds like the city is raising the tax rates because we are anticipating bringing in more revenue than last year. This is NOT the case.
The City of Tomball is keeping our tax rate the same as last year. But, due to development of property within Tomball which increases the values of the land, plus increased appraised values from Harris County Appraisal District (HCAD), the City of Tomball is expecting to receive more revenues than we have received in the past.
If you have any questions please email me and I will be more than happy to answer them for you.
