Notice of 2021 Tax Rate Public Hearing
The Town of Westlake is proposing a property tax rate of $0.016788 and a public hearing will be held regarding this rate on September 13, 2021, at Westlake Town Hall, Council Chambers. This rate is the same ad valorem rate adopted last year & staff's proposal is to maintain the same rate this year. The Public Hearing Notice (link above) must read that we are increasing the tax rate as this verbiage is required as part of the Texas Property Tax Reform and Transparency Act of 2019. The increase referenced in the Notice is the difference between the calculated No-New-Revenue rate and our proposed/current tax rate, a difference or "increase" of $0.00042. We encourage you to review this notice and the other ad valorem information provided in the coming days on our website under the Finance Department / Property Tax tab.
