Default Property Taxes

I tried a search, but didn't really find what I was looking for (though I admit I'm a little impatient).

How much should you take into account for taxes on 180,000 house in Round Rock? How about 190,000? What about Cedar Park/Leander? Austin itself? Am I looking at 7500?

I had seen some taxes listed on Austinhomesearch.com, but suddenly the houses I've been looking at don't have them listed. I'm assuming it wouldn't really apply anyway as the taxes are based on the current assessed value and the value will change once the house is sold, right?

A home appraised at 175K in Austin would be 3800. I imagine your taxes will be around 4000 for the prices you listed.

It depends on the address of the property. For Williamson County, a great source of information is Williamson Central Appraisal District. On the site you can do a search by address, see the assessed value and find out the taxing entity codes.

You can look up the corresponding rates on on those entities at this address: (broken link).

Add up the entity rates, you get a number (an example would be 2.8). Take the appraised value, divide it by 100 and multiply your sum of entity rates by the appraised value divided by 100...that's your tax bill (more or less).

House = 235,000
Sum of Taxing Entities = 2.8

235000/100 = 2350 * 2.8 = Tax of $6580

Hope this helps...
