County Approves Budget, Lowers Tax Rate

For the fourth consecutive year, the Commissioners’ Court voted to lower the property tax rate and approved the 2021-22 Fiscal Year Budget at their regular meeting on Tuesday, August 24, 2021. The tax rate was lowered by 8.67 percent from .504957 to .461171 per $100 valuation.  The county property tax rate has gone down from .5887 in 2019 to .4612 in 2022, a decrease of 12 cents, or 21.6 percent. Watch here for budget details and interesting stories of how your tax dollars are used to improve the quality of life in Kaufman County.

Named as the third fastest growing County in the nation,  the year of 2022 will bring with it the opening of the new Justice Center and Pet Adoption Center that the voters approved in 2019 at a combined cost of $46.4 million. These two efficient, state-of-the-art facilities are under construction and, when finished, will change the way we do business in the County for people and animals. The services provided in those two facilities will allow us to offer a more streamlined way of doing business while meeting the needs of Kaufman County. Residents will also experience a myriad of bond supported road improvements throughout the County as we aim to keep pace with our explosive population growth. The details of the budget can be found on the County website here.  For questions or more information, please email us at:
