The Dallas County Community College District conducted public hearings on August 21, 2018 and August 28, 2018 on a proposal to increase the total tax revenues of the Dallas County Community College District from properties on the tax roll in the preceding year by 6.52%. 

The total tax revenue raised last year at last year’s tax rate of $0.124238 for each $100 of taxable value was $288,067,402.

The total tax revenue proposed to be raised this year at the proposed tax rate of $0.124000 for each $100 of taxable value, excluding tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year, is $305,028,456.

The total tax revenue proposed to be raised this year at the proposed tax rate of $0.124000 for each $100 of taxable value, including tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year, is $312,479,449.

The Board of Trustees of Dallas County Community College District is scheduled to vote on the tax rate that will result in that tax increase at a public meeting to be held on September 4, 2018 at the District Offices, Lower Level Room 007, 1601 S. Lamar Street, Dallas, Texas 75215 at 4:00 p.m.
