Sabine County, Texas
It's that time of the year again, when elected officials set proposed tax rates for the county, hospital and school districts ahead of next year's budget planning.
Sabine County Commissioners were required to lower property tax rates for 2019 due higher valuations of property. The 2018 tax rate was .428826 per $100, and the proposed tax rate for 2018 is .35033131 per $100. Almost eight cents per $100 valuation than last year.
The rate is scheduled for approval in September, after the two required public hearings are held. The first of which will be held on August 26, at 8:30 a.m. and the second hearing will be held on Sept. 9 at 8:30 a.m.
