If you live in the city limits, the city gets approximately 35% of your property tax payment. The school gets around 48%, the county gets 15% and the community college gets 2%. There are also some businesses located in TIF areas where a portion of the tax bill is split with these percentages and a portion is diverted to a particular project.
If you live outside of city limits, no portion of your property taxes goes to the city.
There are five factors that determine your tax bill. Four of these factors are tax rates set by the school, city, county and community college. The fifth factor is your property valuation. If all four entities did not raise taxes but your property valuation increased, your individual tax bill could still be higher.
The city currently has around $12 million in cash on hand. This is about 35% of annual expenses and is not excessive for a city with municipal gas and electric utilities.
