General

Play is critical to help children heal following a disaster or crisis, as they deal with the stress of lost homes, lost loved ones, lost routine and lost normalcy. KaBOOM!, alongside our partners, responds when there are natural or man-made disasters that have an impact on kids.

With the partnership and support of the Rebuild Texas Fund, we are working side-by-side to bring play to kids impacted by Hurricane Harvey and provide them a safe, fun environment to build resiliency and cope with the stress often associated with natural disasters. Our partnership will bring 57 playgrounds or creative play products to communities affected by Hurricane Harvey.

KaBOOM! partners with communities, corporations and foundations, like Rebuild Texas Fund, to help rebuild — or create — places for kids to play. Through the leadership of communities and the hard work of volunteers, we’ve built or restored over 260 playgrounds and deployed 65 creative play products, such as Imagination Playground and Rigamajig.

These efforts have engaged over 55,000 volunteers and brought play back to nearly 400,0000 kids throughout Texas. Visit https://kaboom.org/disaster_crisis_re… to learn more about our efforts to help rebuild communities affected by disasters and crisis.

NOTICE OF 2019 TAX YEAR PROPOSED
PROPERTY TAX RATE FOR TOWN OF FULTON

Printable Notice

A tax rate of $0.239990 per $100 valuation has been proposed for adoption by the governing body of Town of Fulton. This rate exceeds the lower of the effective or rollback tax rate, and state law requires that two public hearings be held by the governing body before adopting the proposed tax rate.

The governing body of Town of Fulton proposes to use revenue attributable to the tax rate increase for the purpose of street repairs and funding essential governing services.

PROPOSED TAX RATE $0.239990 per $100
PRECEDING YEAR’S TAX RATE  $0.262272 per $100
EFFECTIVE TAX RATE  $0.232767 per $100
ROLLBACK TAX RATE  $0.242022 per $100

The effective tax rate is the total tax rate needed to raise the same amount of property tax revenue for Town of Fulton from the same properties in both the 2018 tax year and the 2019 tax year.

The rollback tax rate is the highest tax rate that Town of Fulton may adopt before voters are entitled to petition for an election to limit the rate that may be approved to the rollback rate.

YOUR TAXES OWED UNDER ANY OF THE ABOVE RATES CAN BE CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
property tax amount= (rate) x (taxable value of your property)/100
