Understanding Your City Taxes Starts Here

Southlake was built with an eye towards the future. Town Square, each neighborhood, parks, streets, water, even sewer are all part of a comprehensive plan for a sustainable City that adapts to change but keeps its character. Each year, the Council has implemented a series of master plans with the City’s budget, methodically funding desired projects while adhering to established financial guidelines to ensure a secure and stable financial situation. As a result, the City enjoys a AAA bond rating and has taken been able to lower the tax rate to a historic low. Residents also benefit from a 20% homestead exemption (the highest level permitted by law), and yes, even very low debt. All of this works together to provide high-value municipal services as part of our plan.
