Are there limits on property tax increases?

Yes, there are limits on property tax increases. 

First of all, most taxing districts have limits on the tax rates they may charge. 

Second, districts other than schools are limited to annual increases of 3% plus an allowance for growth on a portion of their budgets. The growth allowance is determined on the basis of new construction and annexation that occurred during the previous year.
