A tax rate of $0.443832 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of City of Dickinson. 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 City of Dickinson proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of providing essential City services.
The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for City of Dickinson from the same properties in both the 2018 tax year and the 2019 tax year.
The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that City of Dickinson may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.
