A tax rate of $0.748447 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of City of Duncanville. 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 Duncanville proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of funding ongoing maintenance and operations of the City including police and fire protection, streets, parks, public library, and municipal buildings and facilities.

PROPOSED TAX RATE                       $0.748447 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR’S TAX RATE      $0.758447 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE                       $0.689904 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE                        $0.748940 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of Duncanville from the same properties in both the 2017 tax year and the 2018 tax year.

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