A tax rate of $0.713800 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body
of City of Seagoville. This rate exceeds the lower of the effective or rollback tax rate, and state
law requires that two public hearings be held by the governing body before adopting the proposed
PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.713800 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR'S TAX RATE $0.713794 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE $0.700827 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE $0.768155 per $100
The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue
for City of Seagoville from the same properties in both the 2013 tax year and the 2014 tax year.
The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that City of Seagoville may adopt before voters are
entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.
YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE ABOVE RATES CAN BE CALCULATED AS
