Even as they lower tax rates, North Texas cities are failing to offset spike in property values

As cities unveil their 2019 budgets, about half of the region's biggest cities plan to adopt lower tax rates in September. But those cuts are underwhelming compared with the rising revenue collected because of skyrocketing property values. Residents in almost every city will pay more property taxes to local governments in 2019 than they do now. 

All North Texas cities are upholding another duty under Texas' property tax law by having two public hearings on their proposed tax rates. By now, the process is already months down the line and change is unlikely. This is your chance to schedule time on the agenda to discuss the city's budget, which, as taxpayers, we have the right.
