Remember the statement of increase/decrease that addressed the change in revenue if the effective rate is adopted? Well, if you take last year's total taxes, add the dollar increase, divide by the effective tax rate, and divide by 100, you will get the tax revenue dollars raised by each penny on the tax rate. Pretty clever, huh? For Schertz, the math works out to $124,693 per penny of tax rate.
