Benchmarking measures our progress from a point in time and is something that serves as a standard by which others may be measured. Benchmarking data is taken from 2013/14 budgets. *Both Georgetown and San Marcos own and operate an electric utility. 291 Benchmarking allows the City to focus on the relative level of comparison in key areas within the Central Texas area and find ways to close gaps when indicated. Peer Benchmarking Georgetown has chosen to measure itself against cities in the surrounding area that have similar size, location or growth issues and benchmarks. Benchmarking data is taken from 2013/14 budgets. 292 Certified Property Value Historical Data Fiscal Certified Tax Increase (Dec)Percent of Year Assessed Value Rate In Value Levy Collected 2005 2,391,137,407 0.3463 6.41% 98.89% 2006 2,643,057,606 0.3463 10.54% 98.94% 2007 3,060,088,213 0.3673 15.78% 99.28% 2008 3,700,498,187 0.3566 20.93% 98.24% 2009 4,176,836,943 0.3562 12.87% 98.05% 2010 4,173,874,126 0.3562 -0.07% 98.41% 2011 4,180,224,985 0.3562 0.15% 99.22% 2012 4,350,171,379 0.3875 4.07% 99.24% 2013 4,479,836,995 0.4100 2.98% 99.41% 2014 4,694,586,750 0.4395 4.79% 98.82% 2015 5,253,246,873 0.4340 11.90%N/A 293 Certified Taxable Assessed Valuation By Class of Property Assessed Values Class of Property 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 Residential Single Family 2,740,637,876 2,857,351,025 2,929,698,565 3,087,103,596 3,495,503,571 Multi Family 114,193,245 119,056,293 122,070,774 129,132,209 161,091,180 Total Residential 2,854,831,121 2,976,407,318 3,051,769,339 3,216,235,805 3,656,594,751 Commercial 931,346,100 908,743,400 981,555,050 1,011,277,924 1,144,471,358 Personal Property, Other 269,771,730 311,033,417 382,683,621 370,699,347 326,852,517 Certified Assessed Valuation 4,055,948,951 4,196,184,135 4,416,008,010 4,598,213,076 5,127,918,626 60% of uncertified under protest value 124,276,034 121,964,074 63,828,945 96,373,674 125,328,247 Total Assessed Valuation 4,180,224,985 4,318,148,209 4,479,836,955 4,694,586,750 5,253,246,873 294 City Property Tax Rate Comparison (Cities within the Central Texas Area) Combined Tax Rate City of Georgetown $0.80 Taylor (.81389) Killeen (.7428) .70 Leander (.65792) .60 Temple (.5864) Pflugerville (.5390)Hutto (.528691)San Marcos (.5302) .50 Cedar Park (.48500)Austin (.48090) Georgetown (.4340) $0.30 .30 .40 Round Rock (.41465) $2.321029 $0 Georgetown Independent School District ($1.3980) 0.43400 Williamson County ($0.489029) 295 2014 Tax Rate Components Total Tax Supported Debt Compared to General Sales Tax Revenue Growth 296 Total Combined Tax Rate Comparison (Cities within the Central Texas Area) 297 Sales Tax Revenue Analysis Historical Data (Includes 1% general use only) Fiscal Year Population Revenues Sales Tax per capita % change from prior year 2006 41,395 6,056,507 146.31 24% 2007 44,117 6,761,872 153.27 12% 2008 45,710 7,310,027 159.92 8% 2009 46,787 6,943,036 148.40 -5% 2010 47,865 7,454,806 155.75 7% 2011 48,902 7,803,863 159.58 5% 2012 49,543 8,277,502 167.08 6% 2013 50,513 9,326,554 184.64 13% *2014 52,214 10,460,000 200.33 12% *2015 54,689 10,933,000 199.91 5% 298 Tax Revenues Historical Data Combined Revenue City Rate Value Rate Levy Tax Total 2005 4,874,132 8.00% 2,391,137,407 0.3463 8,280,509 13,154,641 2006 6,056,507 8.25% 2,643,057,606 0.3463 9,151,851 15,208,358 2007 6,761,872 8.25% 3,060,088,213 0.3673 11,239,704 18,001,576 2008 7,310,027 8.25% 3,700,498,187 0.3566 13,195,606 20,505,633 2009 6,943,036 8.25% 4,176,836,943 0.3562 14,877,893 21,820,929 2010 7,454,806 8.25% 4,173,874,126 0.3562 14,867,340 22,322,146 2011 7,803,863 8.25% 4,180,224,985 0.3562 14,889,961 22,693,824 2012 8,277,502 8.25% 4,350,171,379 0.3875 16,856,914 25,134,416 2013 9,326,554 8.25% 4,479,836,995 0.4100 18,367,332 27,693,886 **2014 10,460,000 8.25% 4,694,586,750 0.4395 20,632,709 31,092,709 **2015 10,933,000 8.25% 5,253,246,873 0.4340 22,799,091 33,732,091 **Projected Fiscal Year Sales Tax Property Tax 299 Additional Sales and Use Taxes Total 2% Authorized In 2001, voters authorized the adoption of an additional 0.5% sales and use tax within the City, with the proceeds to be used for transportation system improvements to support economic development.
