The City is authorized to levy an annual ad valorem property tax on real property and personal property within the City. The City currently levies a property tax on real property (i.e. land and improvements), mobile homes and on business personal property. The Central Appraisal District for each County with property boundaries within the City determines the value for each property in the City. The City of Wylie has properties in Collin County, Rockwall County and Dallas County.
Property tax rolls are certified in July, and the tax rate is adopted in September, along with the City's annual operating budget. The City of Wylie tax collector sends statements in October to each taxpayer. Tax revenue is used to support General Fund operations and to fund long-term bonded indebtedness. Taxes are levied on January 1 of each year and are considered past due on February 1 of the following year.
The total assessed valuation increased by $201,955,923 to $2,618,781,455. The increase in the assessed valuation in FY2014-2015 will result in an increase of $1,436,786 in ad valorem tax revenues for Maintenance and Operations. The tax rate for the Maintenance and Operations is .597978/100 and the Interest & Sinking fund is .280922/100 for a total proposed tax rate of .87890/100. The Interest and Sinking fund is used to pay for bonds and certificates approved by the voters. For FY2014-2015, the City's proposed tax rate will be over the effective tax rate but under the rollback tax rate.This tax levy will generate $15,659,737 for the General Fund and $7,356,733 for the Interest & Sinking Fund.
