Welcome

The Budget, Tax Rate, and Audit Workshop is designed for elected officials and staff who have a role in developing or implementing the city budget.

This full-day workshop will cover:

  • The basics of the budget and tax rate process
  • Your role in creating the budget
  • How to forecast revenues
  • How the budget serves as a road map to city staff
  • What the audit means
  • How the politics fit into the budgeting process.

All workshop participants will receive a copy of the just released TML Revenue Manual for Texas Cities, which discusses nearly every known source of municipal revenue from property and sales taxes, to raffles and cemetery taxes.
