At its August 2015 meeting, the Texarkana College Board of Trustees voted to consider adopting a new tax rate for the college district.

If adopted, the rate would move from 0.105 to 0.113, and the average homeowner in Bowie County would see a slight increase in taxes of less than seventy cents per month, or approximately $8 annually. [View press release (.pdf)].

Homeowners who are 65 years of age or older or disabled would be exempt from the tax rate increase if proper documentation is filed with the Bowie County Tax Assessor.
