The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2023 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of DeSoto from the same properties in both the 2022 tax year and the 2023 tax year. The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that City of DeSoto may adopt without holding an election to seek voter approval of the rate. The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that City of DeSoto is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2023 tax year. A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON September 19, 2023 AT 07:00 PM AT 211 E. Pleasant Run Rd, Desoto, TX 75115. The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, City of DeSoto is not required to hold an election at which voters may accept or reject the proposed tax rate. However, you may express your support for or opposition to the proposed tax rate by contacting the members of the Desoto City Council of City of DeSoto at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.
