Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Property Tax Bills go to Attorney July 1

Property Tax Bills go to Attorney July 1

All Property Tax bills that are not up to date by June 30 will be sent to the City's Deliquent Tax Attorney for collection.

There are Options!!  However, if you wait until your account goes to the attorney, you are responsible for the additional fees incurred.  Since being late Feb 1, you have already been dinged an 18% late fee as the late fee continues each month you don't pay.  In addition to that 18%, you'll have to pay an additional 20% collection fee if your file is in the hands of the attorney.

So, if you're having problems paying your taxes and you need help with the city to work out a payment plan, call them ASAP!  They don't want the extra work, and they don't want to foreclose on your house because you can't pay your taxes.  They'll work with you if you're willing to work with them.

You can reach the city at 972-744-4151 or the Tax Department at 972-744-4150.

If you're having problems paying your taxes, are you also having problems paying your mortgage?  Call me before you get into a foreclosure situation!  I can help and we can work things out with your lender through a short-sale if that's what needs to be done.
