How Central Health Maximizes Your Tax Dollar

How We Use Your Tax Dollars

When Central Health was created in 2004, Travis County and the City of Austin transferred most of their respective tax bases dedicated to health care. After this transfer, Central Health assumed responsibility for levying taxes to finance health care services for eligible Travis County residents. State law currently provides that this levy may not exceed 25 cents on each $100 of the taxable value of property taxable by Central Health.
