Notice of 2021 Tax Rate Public Hearing
The Town of Westlake is proposing a tax rate of $0.016788 and a public hearing will be held regarding this rate on Sept 13, 2021. This rate is the same ad valorem rate adopted last year & we the proposal is to keep the rate steady. The notice reads that we are increasing the tax rate and this verbiage is necessary as part of the Truth-In-Taxation law changes that we hope you find helpful in understanding the intricacies of the Texas ad valorem rate calculations. The increase referenced in the Notice is the difference between the calculated No-New-Revenue rate and our proposed/current tax rate, a difference or "increase" of $0.00042. We encourage you to learn more by reviewing all of our tax rate calculation information provided on our website.
