Many voters will see tax levies on the May 4th election ballot. Levies are expressed in millage rates, or the dollar amount per $1,000 of assessed value (35% of the appraised value). For example a levy with a 2.0 millage rate would generate $70 in tax liability on a $100,000 property.
There are three types of levies:
- Renewal levies extend existing levies at the same millage rate.
- Replacement levies change existing levies’ reduced millage rates back to the full rate. These types of levies increase tax liability.
- Additional levies generate tax revenue through new levies, raising the total effective tax rate for a given district.
