Top 10 delinquent property taxpayers announced

He called. He left messages. He wrote letters. No one paid up.

Despite repeated personal attempts to reach the 2016 top delinquent taxpayers, Bruce Elfant, the Travis County tax assessor-collector, said it is time to announce the property owners who are refusing to pay.

"I take no joy in this," Elfant said. "However, I will not allow these property owners to fly under the radar and disrespect the thousands of county residents who do pay their property taxes."

These property owners received their tax bills in October 2016, failed to make payment by the Feb. 1, 2017 deadline and still haven’t paid or made a payment plan.

The worst thing a property owner can do is ignore their property tax bill. "All we ask at the tax office is if you cannot pay your tax bill in full to contact us, talk to us and work with us to set up a reasonable payment plan," Elfant said. "Why take the risk of losing your property because of unpaid taxes?"

Failure to pay property taxes can result in a lawsuit where Travis County seizes the property and auctions it off for unpaid taxes.

The county counts on property tax money to pay for services, such as law enforcement, the courthouse, emergency services, parks and road care. If the county’s projected property tax revenue falls short, programs can be cut or property taxes raised to make up the difference.

The tax office has collected 98.9 percent of the property taxes owed for the 2016 tax year and has $39 million left to collect. This is a slight increase in collections over last year.
