A tax rate of $0.465000 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of City of Murphy.
PROPOSED TAX RATE
$0.465000 per $100
NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE
$0.442500 per $100
VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE
$0.480794 per $100
The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2022 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of Murphy from
the same properties in both the 2021 tax year and the 2022 tax year.
The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that City of Murphy 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 City of Murphy is proposing to increase property taxes for
the 2022 tax year.
A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON September 6, 2022 AT 6:00 PM AT Murphy City Hall Council Chambers,
206 N. Murphy Rd., Murphy, TX 75094.
The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, City of Murphy 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 Governing Body of City of Murphy at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.
