With valuations up, college tax rate will fall

August 8, 2014

Property owners may see some relief on their tax bill next year, at least where it comes to the Howard College taxing district.

Trustees with Howard College discussed a proposed 2015 tax rate at 17.3457 cents per $100 valuation Thursday following a lengthy budget workshop, which is a 3 cent decrease from this year’s rate of 20.3738 cent per $100 valuation. College officials expected to bring in $5.3 million in tax revenue, about $400,000 more than this last year’s project amount.

Proposed city budget promises good things for residents, businesses

August 6, 2014

Big Spring city officials are proposing an increase in their tax levy for the next fiscal year, but they promise residents will get a good bang for their buck.

During the city council’s annual budget work, City Manager Todd Darden and his staff proposed a budget featuring a tax rate of 86.5043 cents per $100 property valuation, which is the same rate as the expiring budget. Because of a huge jump in property valuations, however, the rate is projected to bring in $826,000 more in revenue than it did last year.
