Fort Bend County commissioners will consider passing a lowered fiscal year 2023-24 tax rate at an upcoming Sept. 12 regular meeting, according to agenda documents.

By the numbers

County tax rate documents show the county is considering a total $0.4389 tax rate per $100 of valuation for FY 2023-24.
  • This rate constitutes a decrease of $0.0123 from the previous fiscal year’s rate of $0.4512 per $100 of valuation.
  • The proposed tax rate would cost a resident with a $300,000 home about $1,316.70 annually in property taxes.
  • The county is expected to raise more property taxes year over year despite the lowered rate, partly due to new properties added to the tax roll and higher property values.
Zooming out

The county previously called a bond with a $712.6 million mobility package and a $153 million parks and facilities package to appear on ballots this November. This bond will not raise the county’s tax rate, according to commissioners.
