A tax rate of $0.478215 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of CITY OF LUFKIN.
The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2023 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for CITY OF LUFKIN from the same properties in both the 2022 tax year and the 2023 tax year. The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that CITY OF LUFKIN 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 LUFKIN is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2023 tax year. A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON SEPTEMBER 5, 2023 AT 5:00 PM AT CITY HALL COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 300 E. SHEPHERD AVE, LUFKIN, TEXAS 75901. The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, CITY OF LUFKIN 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 of CITY OF LUFKIN at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.
