The No New Revenue Tax Rate, listed at $0.4945 per $100 valuation, generates the same property tax revenue as the prior year based on the new year’s total value of taxable property as defined by state law. The now-adopted rate for FY 2020-21 represents a $0.0082 decrease below the estimated No New Revenue Tax Rate and a $0.0113 decrease below last year's property tax rate of $0.4976 per $100 valuation.

The average Pflugerville home is listed at $258,167, per city documents. The average Pflugerville home value was recorded as $254,485 in FY 2019-20.

The estimated average city tax bill under the now-adopted rate is approximated at $1,255.47, per documents.

The FY 2020-21 budget formally goes into effect Oct. 1.
