NG:

The Truth-in-Taxation requirements passed in 2003 or 2004 by the Texas Legislature are designed to protect the taxpayer with very specific requirement upon the taxing entities.

Taxing entities, each year, are required to calculate two baseline numbers:

1) An Effective Tax Rate - A tax rate that considers appraised value changes and would generate the same amount of revenue as in the previous year.

2) A Roll Back Tax Rate - A tax rate based upon 108% of the previous year's Maintenance and Operations costs and Debt Service.

The proposed tax rate is then compared to these two baseline numbers and if the proposed tax rate is greater than the lower of two, specific requirements must be met that include the publication in question. These requirements are due to the fact that the proposed tax rate will generate more revenue on the same properties as it had in the previous year.

So, if appraised values doubled and a taxing entity proposed the same tax rate as the previous year their revenue would also be doubling. However, the taxing entity could reduce it's rate by half, generating the same amount of revenue as the previous year.

The requirements of Truth in Taxation are based upon the amount of revenue not the Tax Rate!

As to remedies:

This same set of codes provides the tax payer with the ability to file an injunction against the taxing entity if he or she believes the entity did not comply with the calculation or publication requirements.

And, oh yes, several complaints have been filed with multiple State and County agencies.
