The City of Duncanville collects its annual property taxes late in its fiscal year. Consequently, each year it must finance part of its operating budget using tax anticipation notes. The notes are repaid upon collection of property taxes. On April 1, 2017, the city estimated that it will require $2,500,000 to finance governmental activities for the remainder of the 2017 fiscal year. On that date, it had $770,000 of cash on hand and $830,000 of current liabilities.
