Council Proposes Lower Tax Rate
The Double Oak Town Council, in a unanimous 5-0 vote, plans to lower the property tax rate for fiscal year 2020-2021.
The town council voted to set the maximum proposed tax rate at 0.229210 which is less than the no-new-revenue tax rate of 0.229212. The current tax rate is 0.23000. This means the town of Double Oak is proposing to not increase property taxes for the 2020-2021 tax year.
Mayor Pro Tem Joe Dent, Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Billie Garrett and Council Members Anita Nelson, Scott Whisenhunt and Von Beougher set the vision to follow the tax reform of Senate Bill 2 (SB2).
The council, our employees, our residents, our volunteers, our partners and our businesses recognize these are tough economic times and property tax relief is in order for our Double Oak residents and businesses.
The public hearings related to the budget and tax rate will be held on Monday, September 21, 2020 at 7 p.m. at Town Hall. The final budget and tax rate will be formally voted on after the public hearings at the same council meeting. Please check the town website for proposed budget and tax rate information and contact Town Hall with questions or comments.
