Tax Payments

Tax bills are mailed at the beginning of each November to owners of property within the Murray City Limits. The tax bill due is calculated by the City using the Property Value Administration (PVA) office's assessed dollar value of the property. There are three components to the tax bill: Police and Fire, School Tax and General Fund. General Fund and Police and Fire are set annually by the City Council. The school tax rate is set annually by the Murray Independent School District. The City collects the school tax but does not set the rate. See the table below for current and past year's tax rate percentages.
