In News by Reporter News

A public hearing on the Brazoria County tax rate and upcoming budget will be held Sept. 8 at 9 a.m.

County Commissioners Court have agreed to propose a property tax rate of $0.487804 per $100 valuation for the coming fiscal year. The proposed rate is slightly lower than the current rate of $0.4985 per $100 valuation – but equal to the effective tax rate, or the rate estimated to generate the same amount of revenues as the prior year.

The county may adopt a lower rate than the proposed rate, but not a higher rate.

Meetings are held in the First Floor Commissioners’ Courtroom, Suite 100A, of the County Courthouse in Angleton.
