Georgetownâ€™s Property Tax Rate Among Lowest in Texas
Annual TML survey shows tax rate lower than 98 percent of cities
The recently released 2005 Tax and Debt survey of 585 Texas cities by the Texas Municipal League
shows that Georgetown had a lower property tax rate than all but two of 86 cities with populations above
20,000. Georgetownâ€™s population in the survey was listed as 34,000 and is currently estimated at 38,734.
The survey also revealed these figures about Georgetownâ€™s property tax rate:
â€¢ Georgetownâ€™s tax rate is lower than 98 percent of the other 85 Texas cities in the survey with
populations greater than 20,000. Only Amarillo and Tyler were lower.
â€¢ Georgetownâ€™s tax rate is lower than 95 percent of the other 145 Texas cities in the survey with
populations greater than 10,000. Only Amarillo, Tyler, Stafford, Humble, Dumas, Rio Grande City,
and Sante Fe were lower.
â€œOur low tax rate is the result of a tradition of fiscal discipline in Georgetown,â€ says City Manager Paul
Brandenburg. â€œThe current City Council identified a low tax rate as a high priority in the most recent
budget process, maintaining that tradition.â€
