Mayor Turner wants to raise your property taxes by 15.3% to pay for storm related debris removal. The Federal government has agreed to reimburse the City of Houston for debris removal.
This new Hurricane Harvey tax will be on the value of your home pre-flood. The Mayor is moving to institute the tax before your homes are revalued in January. Do not believe Channel 13 who rarely if ever gets anything right and is stating it is a 9% tax increase, pure fiction. The increase is 8.5 cents, which represents an increase of 15.3% on your property taxes.
There are three public hearings necessary to enact the tax. Here are the dates and times on the hearings;
September 26th, at 6:00pm October 3rd, at 6:00pm and October 11th at 9:00am.
All will be held at City Hall
I will be writing more on this shortly. Please mark your calendars and if your home flooded please come tell the Mayor and the Council how you feel about money grabs. You may want to ask the Mayor what happened to the 900 million dollars collected for the “Rain Tax”.
This was on my mind.
