The Austin Community College District 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 11.8
percent. 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 23, 2018 at
12:00 p.m. at 5930 Middle Fiskville Road, Austin, Texas.

The second public hearing will be held on August 27, 2018 at

The average taxable value of a residence homestead in the
Austin Community College District last year was $316,276.
Based on last year’s tax rate of $0.1008 per $100 of taxable
value, the amount of taxes imposed last year on the average
home was $318.81.

The average taxable value of a residence homestead in the
Austin Community College District this year is $336,361. If
the governing body adopts the effective tax rate for this year
of $0.0937 per $100 of taxable value, the amount of taxes
imposed this year on the average home would be $315.17.

If the governing body adopts the proposed tax rate of $0.1048
per $100 of taxable value, the amount of taxes imposed this
year on the average home would be $352.51.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the hearings
and express their views.
