Gee. After Rick Perry Cut the Budget , Texas Communities Raising Property Taxes

15 August 2011 at 12:51:11 PM

as of course a lot of them are forced to. Glen Rose is not among that number.

Bedford officials are considering raising the tax rate from 49.16 cents to 50.64 cents per $100 of assessed property value, which would result in the owner of a $145,765 home -- Bedford's average -- paying $19 more per year, Mayor Pro Tem Ray Champney said.

Watauga is proposing a tax rate of 62.52 cents per $100 of valuation, an increase of 4.4525 cents from this year. If the rate is approved, it would result in additional tax of $27.52 annually on an $89,901 home, the average in Watauga, according to budget documents.

Haltom City is considering increasing the tax rate about a half-cent, from this year's 64.63 cents to about 65.17 cents.

Well, as you know, there are 3 main ways to raise county taxes:

  1. Raising the tax rate
  2. Increasing the annual assessed value of home and/or property
  3. Generating and approving various and/or assorted bond packages.

And as I have written many times, during the past 10 years Governor Rick Perry and  Texas Legislators have consistently diverted the State's responsibilities onto local county government, which includes paying for roads and public education.  Consequently, we will see more county tax increases down that long lonesome toll road.
