2017 Property Tax Rates in Montgomery County Hospital District

August 10, 2017

This notice concerns the 2017 property tax rates for Montgomery County Hospital District. It
presents information about three tax rates. Last year’s tax rate is the actual tax rate the taxing unit
used to determine property taxes last year. This year’s effective tax rate would impose the same total
taxes as last year if you compare properties taxed in both years. This year’s rollback tax rate is the
highest tax rate the taxing unit can set before taxpayers start rollback procedures. In each case these
rates are found by dividing the total amount of taxes by the tax base (the total value of taxable
property) with adjustments as required by state law. The rates are given per $100 of property value.

Last year’s tax rate:

Last year’s operating taxes $36,777,065
Last year’s debt taxes $0
Last year’s total taxes $36,777,065
Last year’s tax base $55,303,857,143
Last year’s total tax rate $0.0665/$100

This year’s effective tax rate:

(Maximum rate unless unit publishes notices and holds hearings.)

This year’s rollback tax rate:

Last year’s adjusted operating taxes
(after subtracting taxes on lost property and adjusting for any
transferred function, tax increment financing, state criminal justice mandate, and/or enhanced indigent healthcare expenditures)
÷ This year’s adjusted tax base $50,453,439,215
=This year’s effective operating rate $0.0723/$100
x 1.08=this year’s maximum operating rate $0.0780/$100
+ This year’s debt rate $0/$100
= This year’s total rollback rate $0.0780/$100
