The taxes vary greatly in the Lake Travis area. Depending on which neighborhood you buy in the rates range from just about 2% up to almost 3%. This can make a big difference in your annual tax bill. Here is a quick guide I prepared for your use regarding the 2012 tax rates, please note they may change. Make sure to check with the tax appraisal district before you buy. Also if a home is new construction the amount of taxes shown with Travis County Appraisal District may only be for the lot alone so buyer beware!

Right now in Lakeway proper there are 191 homes for sale, priced between $199K and 3.8 million. The lowest priced home is a foreclosure. I have a shared listing on 519 Ladin Lane that is a stunning home on a huge corner lot, listed for $390K that has a very reasonable tax rate of 2.35%. Here is a link to that home: http://actris.mlxchange.com/DotNet/Pub/EmailView.aspx?r=1102… if you wish to see it please give me a call. If you want more information on these homes or any others please give me a call or email. Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
