Tell Me About Austin Property Taxes

September 3, 2010 at 2:07 pm Leave a comment

Property taxes in Austin are generally about 2.2% of appraised value.  The rate is the more or less the same throughout Austin but there is some variance for school district, hospital district, some areas have  MUD or PUD (utility district) tax but those would generally be outlying areas.  We do not have a state income tax in Texas but make up for it in property taxes. 

You do get a homestead exemption on your primary residence which reduces the school tax valuation by something like $15k.  When you purchase a home you file for the homestead exemption the first January that you own the home (a good Realtor will remind you of this).

2009 rates look like this:

County City School District Community College Hosp Dist Total
0.4215% 0.4209% 1.202% 0.0946% 0.0674% 2.206%
