TECHNICAL CORRECTION: Yesterday’s update asked the
following question: What’s the latest with regard to the effect of the
pandemic on public hearings, especially a city’s statutorily-required
property tax hearing?
Part of the answer was technically incorrect. The answer
read – in the relevant part: Please note that the tax hearing in question
is the one cities hold only if they are exceeding the no-new-revenue rate
(formerly called the effective rate).
The underlined portion should read: Please note
that the tax hearing in question is the one cities hold only if they are
exceeding the lower of the no-new-revenue rate (formerly called the
effective rate) or the voter-approval rate.
Thanks to Rahat Huq, Assistant City Attorney for the City of
Houston, for pointing out the error. We apologize for any confusion.
