A tax rate of $0.495600 per $100 valuation has been proposed by the governing body of the City of McAllen.

 PROPOSED TAX RATE$0.495600 per $100
 NO-NEW-REVENUE TAX RATE$0.473627 per $100
 VOTER-APPROVAL TAX RATE$0.507015 per $100


The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2021 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of McAllen from the same properties in both the 2020 tax year and the 2021 tax year.

The voter-approval rate is the highest tax rate that City of McAllen 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 McAllen is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 tax year.

A public hearing on the proposed tax rate will be held on September 27, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. at McAllen City Hall, Commission Chamber, 3rd Floor, 1300 W. Houston Ave.

The proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate. As a result, City of McAllen is not required to hold an election at which voters may accept or reject the proposed tax rate. However, residents may express support for or opposition to the proposed tax rate by contacting the members of the City of McAllen at their offices or by attending the public hearing mentioned above.

City of McAllen property taxes owed under any of the rates mentioned above can be calculated as follows: 
Property tax amount= (tax rate) x (taxable value of property)/100
