NOTICE OF 2019 TAX YEAR PROPOSED

A tax rate of $0.584000 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of City of
Coppell. This rate exceeds the lower of the effective or rollback tax rate, and state law requires that two
public hearings be held by the governing body before adopting the proposed tax rate.
The governing body of City of Coppell proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the
purpose of Public Safety expenditures.

PRECEDING YEAR'S TAX RATE $0.569500 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE $0.563815 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE $0.584608 per $100
The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of
Coppell from the same properties in both the 2018 tax year and the 2019 tax year.
The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that City of Coppell may adopt before voters are entitled to
petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.
YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE ABOVE RATES CAN BE CALCULATED AS
