The County of Travis conducted public hearings on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 and Friday, September 22, 2017 in the Commissioners Courtroom on the first floor at 700 Lavaca Street, Austin, Texas on a proposal to increase the total tax revenues of the County of Travis from properties on the tax roll in the preceding year by 3.42 percent.

The total tax revenue proposed to be raised this year at the proposed tax rate of $0.3690 for each $100 of taxable value, excluding tax revenue to be raised from new property added to the tax roll this year, is $614,715,520.
