City of Pleasanton tax rate to increase, public hearing Sept. 2



The City of Pleasanton is proposing an increased tax rate of $0.5156450 per $100 valuation for 2021. This is a 3.17% increase from 2020. This proposed tax rate is greater than the nonew revenue tax rate of $0.4749960, therefore, the City of Pleasanton is proposing to increase property taxes for the 2021 year.

Because the proposed tax rate is not greater than the voter-approval tax rate of $0.5156480, the City of Pleasanton is not required to hold an election at which voters may accept or reject the proposed tax rate.
