The no-new-revenue tax rate is the tax rate for the 2021 tax year that will raise the same amount of property tax revenue for the Travis County Healthcare District d/b/a Central Health from the same properties in both the 2020 tax year and the 2021 tax year.

The proposed tax rate is greater than the no-new-revenue tax rate. This means that the Travis County Healthcare District d/b/a Central Health is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 tax year.

A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE PROPOSED TAX RATE WILL BE HELD ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2021 AT 5:00 p.m. at the Austin City Hall, 301 W. Second Street, Austin, TX 78701.
