fort bend county: Stafford, the Texas Town with No Property Taxes - 02/20/12 02:51 AM
Did you know that Stafford Texas has no Property Taxes?   It’s true, they don’t.  And it is all because of their mayor Leonard Scarcella.  Since 1995 they have gone with a no property tax system.  That is a risky plan, but it has worked for 17 years.  When many cities, towns and Counties are going bankrupt, how does Stafford make it work?  They focus on staying within the budget and use Sales Tax as their main source of income.  Along with Hotel Tax, Building permits and franchise tax. 
Without Property(real estate) Taxes, it is possible to buy more home in … (4 comments)

For spouses who already receive Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC), there is no need to send any … (0 comments)

fort bend county: Fort Bend County Appraisal District getting sued for not using Foreclosures to get values - 08/09/10 12:31 PM
Currently the Fort Bend County Central Appraisal District is being sued by several Richmond residents.  They accuse the appraisal district of not considering foreclosures when appraising the properties.  By not using foreclosures they are not getting a true value to tax.  Since foreclosures many times sell for less then a resale home, these foreclosure could decrease the tax value of many residents homes.    
Attorney David Showalter had this to say "FBCAD has repeatedly failed to comply with the statute which provides that the chief appraiser may not exclude from consideration the value of the other residential property in the same … (0 comments)
