I read that there can be mulitple property taxes for one address in some parts of SA. Is that correct? How would one find out which area that is?

That would depend on its exact location. In some instances, a home is on the outer edge of Bexar county and the local neighborhoods are serviced by a school district of a nearby adjacent county.

Do you have an address you are interested in that you can forward to me and I can verify the taxable authorities of the particular property?

I am here to help

They are along those magic border lines between counties... Usually you will see this on acreage type properties where part of the land is in one county, and the rest in another county. This will come up on any listing that is sent you though.

But, don't panic too much... the over all taxes are very seldom any more or less than any other property of like kind and quality... In fact, the last home I sold on 14 acres that was taxed by 2 counties, the over all taxes were actually LOWER than the taxes for homes around them...

Just to make your life a TON easier... I can send you all of the properties that fit exactly what you are looking for..

Shoot me a text, e-mail, or give me a quick call.

Depending on where you live, the tax base can be different to support the local schools, county facilities, fire departments etc. Plus many areas have homeowner associations to cover the costs of maintenance for the extra amenities in your specific neighborhood which may include playgrounds, sports courts, pools, walking trails, and median landscaping.

Anytime a Realtor does a search for a specific property, the current information for the taxes will show up in the paperwork. However, what the current homeowner's tax base is, will not necessarily be yours as they may have exemptions for disability, age or use (if they've been growing crops as an example)

If you'd like to know the tax base for a specific neighborhood, give me a call and I can get you the info you need.

Most all our areas have multiple property taxes. There are school, county, city, hospital, etc. The best way for you to see what a property is taxed, go to this site and in put an address. It will tell you each taxing district. http://www.bcad.org/ClientDB/PropertySearch.aspx?cid=1. If you have a particular area you are interested in knowing the taxing rates and districts, I will be happy to with that or any other area.

Dear Bonzidavis,

Realtors can adjust their searches and omit all areas that are taxed for more than one school district or more than one HOA for example. E-mail me and I can set you up with a search, tailored to your specifications.

Do you mean county and school etc? All properties have their taxes broken down that way. There would be some circumstances when more than one locality can tax a specific property for various reasons. I'm in the Austin area so I am not too familiar with San Antonio taxes. I would ask a Realtor you are going to work and or check with the individual counties where you are looking at purchasing. When you do come across a property of interest you can easily see all the taxes that are collected and from what agencies. You can even do this yourself but your Realtor can easily pull a report for you containing this information.

Hope this helps.

For Example....I live in a neighborhood called Timberwood Park. The school district is Comal County even though we live in Bexar County. We are just oustide the San Antonio city limits. We are taxed by the Comal County school district, and we are taxed by Bexar County for all the other taxes such as county, hospital district, roads, etc. We are not paying double school taxes or double county taxes.
