2008 Property Tax Rates in City of Joshua

This notice concerns 2008 property tax rates for the City of Joshua.  It presents information about three tax rates.  Last year’s tax rate is the actual rate the taxing unit used to detemine property taxes last year.  This year’s effective tax rate would impose the same total taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years.  This year’s rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers can start tax rollback procedures.  In each case these rates are found by dividing the total amount of taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable property) with adjustments as required by state law.  The rates are given per $100 of property value.  Click here for more information.    Notice of Effective Tax Rate
