Extension of  Budget and Tax Deadlines Possible

Yesterday Governor Abbott honored a request by the City of Corpus Christi to extend its tax rate setting deadline from September 30, 2017, to October 27, 2017.  TML has requested that the Governor extend the deadline for all cities affected by Hurricane Harvey.  However, we have not received a response to that request at this time.  

If your city has been affected by the recent storm and you need additional time to set your tax rate, we urge you to make a similar request to the Governor on behalf of your individual city.
