I am the listing agent for this wonderful builder's model home at 400 Majestic Oak in Woodland Park, Georgetown Texas. The 2011 tax rate on this particular property was 1.8718, outside the city limits with no city property tax. I am happy to provide you with any additional info you may find helpful.

Hello,
The 2011 tax rates are listed here: http://www.gracytitle.com/e-flyer/TaxRates11/TaxRates_Willia…

This is a current pdf published by Gracy Title. It breaks down the rate according to city, school, etc... as well as by area.

Around 1.8% for outside city limits to around 2.2%-2.4% at the top end.

For example:

$200,000 tax appraised home at 2% = $4000/year.

You can always fight your appraised value to lower your taxes.

It depends, what area/neighborhood are you looking at? Most of our taxes are pretty low ranging from 1.87% (usually outside city limits) to 2.13%.
Here is an old article, and this still continues to be true today.
Georgetown’s Property Tax Rate Among Lowest in Texas
Annual TML survey shows tax rate lower than 98 percent of cities
above 20,000
The recently released 2005 Tax and Debt survey of 585 Texas cities by the Texas Municipal League
shows that Georgetown had a lower property tax rate than all but two of 86 cities with populations above
20,000. Georgetown’s population in the survey was listed as 34,000 and is currently estimated at 38,734.
The survey also revealed these figures about Georgetown’s property tax rate:
• Georgetown’s tax rate is lower than 98 percent of the other 85 Texas cities in the survey with
populations greater than 20,000. Only Amarillo and Tyler were lower.
• Georgetown’s tax rate is lower than 95 percent of the other 145 Texas cities in the survey with
populations greater than 10,000. Only Amarillo, Tyler, Stafford, Humble, Dumas, Rio Grande City,
and Sante Fe were lower.
“Our low tax rate is the result of a tradition of fiscal discipline in Georgetown,” says City Manager Paul
Brandenburg. “The current City Council identified a low tax rate as a high priority in the most recent
budget process, maintaining that tradition.”
