Some of the other local blogs have been talking about El Paso having the second highest tax rate among the 50 largest cities in the United States.
Below is the bottom part of a chart found on page 69 of the June 2019, 50 State Property Tax Comparison Study for taxes paid in 2018:
Yes for median value homes without assessment limits we have the highest (that means that we are number 1) property tax rate among the 50 largest cities in the United States.
Note that our rate of 2.64% is more than twice the national average
City staff is recommending that council add another 4 cents to the rate this year.
It seems that they are also recommending that council call a bond election that if passed would add another 15 cents to the rate.
We deserve better
