Property Tax Rate History
The maintenance and operations (M&O) component of the property tax rate is used to fund the
general operating costs of the City. The interest and sinking fund (I&S) rate, sometimes referred
to as the “debt” rate, is used to repay the City’s general obligation (tax-supported) debt.

Debt Service Requirements By Fiscal Year

Repayment of the City’s long-term debt comes from a variety of funding sources, most notably of which
is the interest and sinking fund (I&S) portion of City property taxes.

Monthly Sales & Use Tax Revenue Comparison By Year

Those doing business within Greenville's City limits generate sales and use taxes on goods and services
that they sell, which they collect and remit to the State Comptroller on a periodic basis. In turn, the State
Comptroller processes and submits the City’s portion of those taxes within two months of the end of the
respective reporting period.

Local Hotel/Motel Occupancy Tax Collection History
The hotel/motel occupancy tax covers hotels, motels, and bed and breakfasts. The State Comptroller's
office collects and administers the state hotel tax, while the City of Greenville is responsible for collecting
its own local hotel tax. Local establishments remit the local taxes they collect to the City on a monthly basis.

Public Information Requests

How to Request Public Information
(Courtesy of the Texas Attorney General’s website)
While there is no strict form required to request public information, there are certain guidelines that must be met. We have set forth the following tips to help you make a successful Public Information Act request.
Tips for Successful Open Records Requests:

1. Your request must be in writing. Only written requests trigger a governmental body's obligations under the Public Information Act.
2. Your request should be for documents or other information that is already in existence. Governmental bodies are not required to answer questions, perform legal research, or comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis as such information is prepared in the future.
3. We recommend that all requests be sent by U.S. mail and that a copy of the original request and proof of its receipt by the governmental body be kept.
4. We recommend that all requests be addressed to the Officer for Public Information or the chief administrative officer of the governmental body. Requests made by facsimile or electronic mail must be addressed to the Officer for Public Information or the chief administrative officer in order to trigger an obligation under the Public Information Act.
5. If you believe that a governmental body has not responded as required by the Public Information Act, we recommend that you contact the Open Records Division Hotline at (512) 478-6736 or toll-free (877) 673-6839,your local District Attorney, or local County Attorney.
