PROPOSED PROPERTY TAX RATES NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE FOR TRAVIS COUNTY PROPERTY OWNERS
Taxpayers can review their potential property tax bills at TravisTaxes.com
AUSTIN, Texas – Travis County property owners can now review proposed tax rates and the potential impact they could have on their 2021 property tax bills online at TravisTaxes.com.
According to Travis Central Appraisal District Chief Appraiser Marya Crigler, “Property taxes are becoming an increasing concern for homeowners in Travis County. TravisTaxes.com makes it easy for property owners to see how local decisions impact their annual tax bill.”
TravisTaxes.com allows a property owner to type in their address and review the proposed tax rates for all of the taxing entities that pertain to their property. The website breaks down how much of their tax bill goes to each taxing entity, shows the impact that proposed rates will have on an owner’s property tax bill, lists upcoming hearings that owners can attend, and provides a convenient online option where taxpayers can send feedback to their local taxing entities.
Travis County property owners can expect to receive a postcard regarding the website in the mail in the coming days.
“The Texas Constitution guarantees taxpayers the right to view an estimate of their tax bill before tax rates are adopted,” added Crigler. “TravisTaxes.com gives them the information they need to stay informed.”
Tax rate information is published on the website by each taxing entity based on their schedules for adopting their 2022 budgets. Because these schedules may vary, property owners can expect to see updates to their information on a regular basis over the coming weeks as new data is received.
Non-Travis County residents can review their proposed tax rates and potential property tax bills online by finding their local website at texas.gov/propertytaxes.
