Mont Belvieu

The City of Mont Belvieu held its second and final public hearing on the tax rate and could adopt it on Sept. 23. 

City staff has recommended tax rate remain unchanged at a rate of $0.436659 per $100 valuation, the same rate that has been in effect for several years. 

Property tax is expected to bring in $17.8 million in the coming year. 

 About 83% of Mont Belvieu’s property tax revenue comes from industry, and commercial and industrial property is taxed 100% of its value. 

Homeowners, however, receive a 20% homestead exemption. And homeowners who are 65 or older receive an additional exemption of $160,00 while disabled homeowners receive an exemption of $75,000. 

City council will vote to adopt the tax rate during its next meeting on Monday, Sept. 23. 

Council meetings begin at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers of City Hall.
