The Travis County Tax Office completed the mailing of more than 400,000 property tax bills that will generate $4.6 billion in revenue.
Almost 300,000 tax bills went directly to property owners and the remainder to mortgage companies. Electronic bills went out Nov. 1 and the mailing of bills through the postal service, which must be sent in batches, was completed Tuesday, Nov. 19.
Those who have not seen their tax bill may view and print it from the Travis County website. State law says property owners are responsible for paying their tax bill by the Jan. 31 deadline, whether or not they received a bill.
“At this time of year, we receive numerous calls from property owners wanting to know when they will receive their tax bill,” said Bruce Elfant, the Travis County tax assessor-collector. The taxing government bodies must determine their tax rates before the tax office can calculate and send property tax bills.
“If you sign up for eBill you will always receive your bill much earlier than those waiting for us to prepare, stuff and snail mail their bills,” Elfant said. “If you are one of the many anxious
Travis County residents who want to see their bill as early as possible, the only way that can happen is if you sign up for email delivery.”
Travis County is asking property owners to pay taxes by eCheck, an electronic payment method that automatically sends a paid receipt for their records.
