County budget is debt-free, lowers tax rate

Wharton County Judge Phillip Spenrath

On Sept. 26, your Wharton County Commissioners Court adopted our 12th consecutive balanced budget utilizing our county’s lowest property tax rate in over 15 years.

The 2022 no new revenue tax rate of $.39056 is 3.4 cents lower than our current rate and once again cuts taxes on a $100,000 home by approx. $34.23.
