The City of Huntsville will hold two public hearings on a proposal to increase total tax revenues from properties on the tax roll in the preceding tax year by 6.98 percent (percentage by which maximum proposed tax rate exceeds lower of rollback tax rate or effective tax calculated under Tax Code, Chapter 26). Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property and the tax rate that is adopted.
The first public hearing will be held on August 18, 2015, 6:00PM at City Hall, 1212 Avenue M. The second public hearing will be held on September 1, 2015, 6:00PM at City Hall, 1212 Avenue M.

The average taxable value of a residence homestead in 2014 last year was $110,844. Based on last year’s tax rate of $ 0.4106 per $100 of taxable value, the amount of taxes imposed last year on the average home was $455.13
The average taxable value of a residence homestead in 2015 this year is $118,765. If the governing body adopts the effective tax rate for this year of $0.3838 per $100 of taxable value, the amount of taxes imposed this year on the average home would be $455.82. If the governing body adopts the maximum proposed tax rate of $0.4106 per $100 of taxable value, the amount of taxes imposed this year on the average home would be $487.65
