Help the community by answering this question:


Tax rates in San Antonio typically run about 2.6% of the value of the home. Matt has correctly noted that the values vary widely and cannot be used as an indication of actual value. The Tax Appraisal district has gotten wiser about pulling SOLD prices from MLS to adjust values, but they are still a long way off from being useful for anything other than comparing same neighborhood values.

You can find the Appraised Value of your home at or ask any REALTOR to do a FREE market analysis for you.

Good luck.

Ok... this really needs to be more specific... but there are 12 homes for sale at exactly $148,000... The taxes ranged from $2200 per year to a maximum of $4200 per year. The average was about $3100. If you would like me to be a lot more specific, just tell me which house you would like to know the taxes on, and I'd be happy to send you the full tax report.

You can do research on property taxes yourself at:
Do a property search.

Taxes reflected on those reports do not account for any exemptions you might be eligible for..

Let me know if I can dig up any info for you.

Tax rates in Texas are not calculated based on cost, but rather tax assessed value. As a non-disclosure state these numbers (cost vs. tax assessed value) can vary widely. A home that sells for $148,000 could be assessed at $120,000 or $155,000 (arbitrary numbers for example purposes). Also, as mentioned, the tax rates are variable depending on where the home is located.

Your best bet is to look up the home at (if the property is in Bexar County) and doing a property search. Your agent can also pull these numbers for you. Remember, the values you pull up will be for the last assessment, so the taxes may not be exact when tax time comes around.

Hope that helps!
