of rollback tax rate or effective tax calculated under Chapter 26, Tax Code). Your
individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on
the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value
of all other property and the tax rate that is adopted.
