Tax statements will be mailed by mid-October to property owners in Tarrant County.
“Bills on accounts with a qualified homestead exemption will reflect the proposed $100,000 homestead exemption proposed by the 88th Legislature as required by Senate Bill 2,” announced Wendy Burgess, Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector. “The Senate Bill requires voter approval in November. Taxpayers can expect a supplemental bill in December for the difference in the unlikely event the proposed amendment is not approved,” stated Burgess.
The proposed amendment states that “the tax bill is considered a final tax bill for the taxes imposed on the property for the 2023 tax year, and no additional tax bill is required to be mailed unless the constitutional amendment is not approved by the voters.”
Tax bills will include the statement required in S.B. 2, which reads in part, “…Because of action by the Texas Legislature, your tax bill has been lowered by $_____”, and the difference between the amount of the tax bill if the changes in law made S.B. 2 were not in effect for that tax year and the amount of tax bill if the Act were in effect for the tax year will be inserted. The statement will include details that will help the taxpayer understand the impact of this amendment on their tax bill.
