WGH Board of Directors Propose Tax Rate Increase

August 16, 2018

A special meeting of the Wilbarger General Hospital Board of Directors was held Tuesday, Aug. 14, and at that time directors voted to increase the 2018 property tax rate to $0.270000 per $100 valuation.

The proposed tax rate of $0.270000 would be approximately 10 cents higher than the 2018 rollback tax rate of $0.173707, and approximately 11 cents higher than the 2017 effective tax rate of $0.160840. The tax rate for 2017 was $0.160466. The proposed tax rate could generate approximately $1 million more in tax revenue for the hospital than the rollback tax rate.

Two public hearings will be held to discuss the proposed tax rate. The first hearing will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 28, and the second hearing will be held on Friday, Aug. 31. Both hearings will be held at Wilbarger General Hospital.
