Regularly scheduled meeting for the Midland City Council.

NOTICE OF 2017 TAX YEAR PROPOSED 
PROPERTY TAX RATE FOR CITY OF MIDLAND

A tax rate of $0.408389 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of City of Midland. 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 City of Midland proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of Street Improvement Projects. 

PROPOSED TAX RATE

$0.408389 per $100

PRECEDING YEAR'S TAX RATE

$0.399679 per $100

EFFECTIVE TAX RATE

$0.396494 per $100

ROLLBACK TAX RATE

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

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that City of Midland may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate. 

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE ABOVE RATES CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS: 
property tax amount= (rate) x (taxable value of your property)/100
