NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING ON TAX INCREASE

A tax rate of 0.050000 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of Harris County Emergency Services District 12.

PROPOSED TAX RATE

$0.050000 per $100

NO-NEW REVENUE TAX RATE

$0.048719 per  $100

VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE

$0.052692 per $100

DE MINIMIS RATE

$0.062748 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 Harris County Emergency Services District 12 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 Harris County Emergency Services District 12 may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate, unless the de minimis rate for Harris County Emergency Services District 12 exceeds the voter-approval tax rate for Harris County Emergency Services District 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 Services District 12, the rate that will raise $500,000, and the current debt rate for Harris County Emergency Services District 12.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that Harris County Emergency Services District 12 is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2020 tax year.

A public hearing on the proposed tax rate will be held on October 06, 2020 at 6:00 PM at Cloverleaf Fire Station No. 1, 911 Hollywood Street, Houston, Texas.

The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, Harris County Emergency Services District 12 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 Board of Directors of Harris County Emergency Services District 12 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 The members of the governing body voted on the proposed tax increase as follows:

FOR: W. Anders, D. Proctor, L. Helgesen, F. Staley and B. Clements
