Public Hearing of the Gillespie County Tax Increase: Tuesday, September 7, 2021
08/25/2021

A tax rate of $0.3577 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of the COUNTY OF GILLESPIE. 
PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.3577 per $100 
NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE $0.3401 per $100 
VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE $0.3817 per $100 
The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2021 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for the COUNTY OF GILLESPIE from the same properties in both the 2020 tax year and the 2021 tax year. 
The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that the COUNTY OF GILLESPIE may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate. 
The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that the COUNTY OF GILLESPIE is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 tax year. 
A PUBLIC MEETING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON September 7, 2021 at 5:20 PM at the County Courthouse, 101 West Main, Fredericksburg, Texas. 
The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, the COUNTY OF GILLESPIE 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 Commissioners Court of the COUNTY OF GILLESPIE at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above. 
YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE TAX RATES MENTIONED ABOVE CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS: 
Property tax amount = ( tax rate ) x ( taxable value of your property ) / 100 
(List names of all members of the governing body below, showing how each voted on the proposal to consider the tax increase or, if one or more were absent, indicating absences.
