The High Plains Water District voted earlier this month to lower the ad valorem tax rate through the next fiscal year.  

The rate is $0.004686/$100 valuation, which is an 8.5% decrease from last year.  

Property valued at $100,000 will pay $4.69 in annual taxes to the district compared to $5.10 in the 2021 fiscal year, according to a news release from HPWD.  

“The Board of Directors has lowered the tax rate yearly since 2014,” noted Board President Lynn Tate of Amarillo in a news release.  

The next fiscal year for HPWD starts Oct. 1.  

The HPWD serves a 16-county area including Hale, Floyd, Lamb, Bailey, Swisher, Castro, Lubbock, Crosby, Lynn, Hockley, Cochran, Parmer, Randall, Deaf Smith, Armstrong and Potter Counties.
