9˘ per week . . $5 per year . . . 0.49˘/$100 of appraised value

What was the point?

This is the amount of additional taxes that would have to be paid above and beyond the property taxes paid to the City of Floresville last year. A TAX INCREASE

Councilman Morones and Councilman Guerrero stood on their principles and refused to allow a TAX INCREASE. The Mayor and Councilman Gomez claim that because the rate was the same as last year that this was not a tax increase. Unfortunately they are mistaken, according to the Texas Tax Laws and the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.

What Morones and Guerrero approved was the EFFECTIVE TAX RATE that would insure that taxpayers would be paying approximately the same amount in property taxes as they did last year, regardless of the current appraisal.

(Source: Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts - http://www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/proptax/tx96_295/rates.html)
"The effective tax rate would provide the taxing unit with approximately the same amount of revenue it had the year before on properties taxed in both years. For example, if property values go up, the effective tax rate goes down. Comparing property tax revenues from one year to the next year tells you whether there will be a tax increase."

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
