A tax rate of $0.380000 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of County of Dimmit. 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 County of Dimmit proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of maintaining existing service levels and to provide resources needed for operations. Tax Rate will be lowered by .0895 cents.

PRECEDING YEAR’S TAX RATE $0.469500 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for County of Dimmit from the same properties in both the 2016 tax year and the 2017 tax year.
