Houston Mayor Bill White has proposed a mere 1/8 of one percent tax rate decrease, but this would actually result in a large tax increase due to rising appraisal vaues, leading Harris County Republican leaders and activists to demand real relief.

Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Paul Bettencourt has penned an analysis showing that, because the appraisal roll has skyrocked by 12.97 percent, this miniscule rate cut would still result in the City collecting $91 million more in property tax revenues. In short, this is actually a tax increase. That’d be about $180 more in city taxes on a $250,000 home.

The Mayor and City Council are still weighing the rate and the budget. You can contact them at:
