The City Council of the City of Takoma Park, Maryland proposes to increase real property taxes.

  2. If the City of Takoma Park maintains the current tax rate of $0.57 per $100 of assessment, real property tax revenues will increase by 1.1% resulting in $118,150 of new real property tax revenues.
  3. In order to fully offset the effect of increasing assessments, the real property tax rate should be reduced to $0.5640, the constant yield tax rate.

The City is considering not reducing its real property tax rate enough to fully offset increasing assessments.  The City proposes to adopt a real property tax of $0.57 per $100 of assessment.  This tax rate is 1.1% higher than the constant yield rate and will generate $118,150 in additional property tax revenues.

A public hearing on the proposed real property tax rate increase will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, April 28, 2014, in the Auditorium of the Takoma Park Community Center at 7500 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park, Maryland. The hearing is open to the public, and public testimony is encouraged.
