Check your mail! Property tax statements were mailed out on Friday.
The Comal County Tax Office began mailing out 2018 property tax statements on Friday.
The statements detail the taxes property owners owe based on property value determined by the Comal Appraisal District, as well as rates set by various entities throughout the county, including the county itself, municipalities, emergency service districts and school districts.
The Tax Office collects taxes for 20 entities, streamlining the tax-collecting process, which otherwise would require taxpayers to receive multiple statements and pay for multiple offices to process their payments, said Cathy Talcott, the county’s tax assessor-collector.
“We have a terrific staff who works hard to make paying property taxes as easy as possible for taxpayers,” she said.
Residents can make partial payments from now through Jan. 31; any taxes left unpaid after Jan. 31 are subject to penalties and interest.
Payment options are:
· Online via debit or credit card or e-check, www.comalcountytaxoffice.net
· Mail to P.O. Box 659480, San Antonio, TX 78265-9480
· In person or via drop boxes at the following Tax Office locations:
o New Braunfels, 205 N. Seguin Ave.
o Sattler, 160 Oak Drive
o Bulverde, 30470 Cougar Bend
· Via drop box at Garden Ridge City Hall, 9400 Municipal Parkway
