NOTICE OF 2017 TAX YEAR PROPOSED
PROPERTY TAX RATE FOR WICHITA COUNTY


A tax rate of $0.662821 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of
Wichita County. 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 Wichita County proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the
purpose of debt repayment and increased operating costs.

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.662821 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR'S TAX RATE $0.606893 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE $0.601377 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE $0.703434 per $100


The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for
Wichita County from the same properties in both the 2016 tax year and the 2017 tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that Wichita County 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
FOLLOWS:

property tax amount= (rate) x (taxable value of your property)/100

ß 26.16 PROPERTY TAX CODE

The county is providing this table of property tax rate information as a service to the residents of the county. Each individual taxing unit is responsible for calculating the property tax rates listed in this table pertaining to that taxing unit and providing that information to the county.

The adopted tax rate is the tax rate adopted by the governing body of a taxing unit.

The maintenance and operations rate is the component of the adopted tax rate of a taxing unit that will impose the amount of taxes needed to fund maintenance and operation expenditures of the unit for the following year.

The debt rate is the component of the adopted tax rate of a taxing unit that will impose the amount of taxes needed to fund the unitís debt service for the following year.

The effective tax rate is the tax rate that would generate the same amount of revenue in the current tax year as was generated by a taxing unitís adopted tax rate in the preceding tax year from property that is taxable in both the current tax year and the preceding tax year.

The effective maintenance and operations rate is the tax rate that would generate the same amount of revenue for maintenance and operations in the current tax year as was generated by a taxing unitís maintenance and operations rate in the preceding tax year from property that is taxable in both the current tax year and the preceding tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate a taxing unit may adopt before requiring voter approval at an election. In the case of a taxing unit other than a school district, the voters by petition may require that a rollback election be held if the unit adopts a tax rate in excess of the unitís rollback tax rate. In the case of a school district, an election will automatically be held if the district wishes to adopt a tax rate in excess of the districtís rollback tax rate.
