Region’s water districts setting tax rates
amarillo.com / Mon, 01 Sep 2014 01:12:46 +0000

The tax rates of area water districts for the coming budget year will continue to have minor impacts on the wallets of taxpayers.

The North Plains Groundwater Conservation District is the only one proposing boosting rates, but that would only mean raising the tax bill of a residence worth the average taxable value of $74,486 by less than $2. It will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Hampton Inn meeting room, 2010 S. Dumas Ave. in Dumas.

The rate would go from 2.5 cents per $100 of taxable property value to 2.7 cents.
