September 26, 2013 (Williamson County, TX) – The Williamson County Commissioners Court adopted the current tax rate of 48.9029 cents per $100 of valuation for 2014. The total county tax rate is comprised of three tax rates: General Fund, Debt Service and Road & Bridge. The General Fund or maintenance and operation tax rate was set at 28.1529 cents, and the Debt Service tax rate was set at 16.7500 cents. The Road and Bridge tax rate was set at 4.00 cents.
Two public hearings were held on the adoption of this rate on September 10 and 17, 2013, both at 10 a.m. in the Historic Courthouse, 710 S. Main Street, Georgetown. The public hearings were required as the Court proposed a rate higher than the effective tax rate, which is calculated to levy the same amount of property taxes as the prior year.
