Just a couple of months ago, the first shoe dropped on property values going up for 2008; well, the second shoe is starting to drop. I just saw in today's paper that Northside ISD has announced their 2008 property tax rate. They're raising their rate 4 cents per $100 assessed value (by BCAD). They say that they need a 10 cent increase but that would require an election. Anyway, the average tax will go up $183.11 cents this year. This is based on an average taxable value of $146,064 (up just under $10,000 since last year). I wonder if the Northeast ISD will follow suit and raise their rates as well as other taxing authorities?

The NSISD is having their meeting Aug 19 to discuss the taxes. Be there to dispute and put in your two cents worth. Say it.

I think he meant get a job that pays cash so he can pay his taxes, but iunno. Someone that makes 120K a year shouldn't have any trouble paying his property taxes.

How does that work-out to a $183.11 increase? A $146,064 house would see a $58.43 increase: (146064/100) x .04 = 58.4256

Even factoring in the $10,000 increase in property value, that would still only be a $62.43 increase.

Or do I need to take a remedial math class?

Take last year's average of $136,188 (/100 = 1361.88) x $1.2625 = $1719.37. Now take this year's average of $146,064 (/100 = 1460.64) x $1.3025 =$1,902.48. That is a difference of $183.11. Don't forget to factor in the additional $9,876 value at the full rate of $1.3025 (= $128.63) plus .04 x $136,188 (= $54.48) for a total of $183.11.

That's the part I missed-- I only calculated the tax for the increased value on the difference of the tax increase (.04), not on the total rate.

Off to class...
