  • NOTICE ABOUT 2020 TAX RATES

    Property Tax Rates in County of Lavaca

    This notice concerns the 2020 property tax rates for County of Lavaca. This notice provides information about two tax rates used in adopting the current tax year's tax rate. The no-new-revenue tax rate would impose the same amount of taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. In most cases, the voter-approval tax rate is the highest tax rate a taxing unit can adopt without holding an election. In each case, these rates are calculated by dividing the total amount of taxes by the current taxable value with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.

    This year's no-new-revenue tax rate:                                                                                             $0.6016

    This year's total voter-approval tax rate:                                                                                      $0.6115
