Summary by Don Norrell, The Woodlands Township President: Making the adjustments to costs and revenues as outlined above, reduces the net impact on the tax rate at incorporation. Using these rough projections, the existing Township tax rate of 23 cents per $100 of value (current) would increase to 34.16 cents at incorporation. Based on the cost of a home valued at $350,000, the additional annual cost of incorporation is approximately $391 per year per residential property or an increase in the tax rate of 48.5% (versus the previous 70.4% increase).

The economic analysis firm, TXP,  was commissioned by the Montgomery Harris Business Alliance to update the Township’s 2012 incorporation impact study. This updated incorporation impact study estimates the change in costs and revenues since 2012, based largely on secondary information derived from comparable communities and then applies this information to existing state law and the current situation in The Woodlands.

The compilation of the data model indicated that additional costs and additional revenues associated with incorporation could increase the Township tax rate from 32.5 cents (the Township’s tax rate at the time of the study) to 55.49 cents per $100 to taxable value. Please keep in mind that these are estimated cost numbers and the numbers are based on additional services The Woodlands would have to assume upon incorporation.
