|Tax Limitation Proposition (Tax Freeze) Information
There will be an item on the ballot of the May 6, 2017 election to consider authorizing a ceiling or limitation on the City of Denton ad valorem tax levy for persons who are disabled and persons sixty-five years of age or older who receive a homestead exemption.
The documents below were presented to the City Council in a January 10 work session to provide information on estimated fiscal impacts of the proposed tax freeze:
As a collective body, Council has had ample opportunity to discuss, debate, and take possible action for or against this proposed tax freeze. As a collective body, Council opted to put the decision directly in the hands of our voting population. As such, you should not see or hear Councilmembers advocating for or against (electioneering) this proposed tax freeze on May’s ballot. All I can do is recommend that you get informed, get engaged, and show up on election day to cast a vote for what you think is the right thing for our community.
