We just built a new home & moved into in Nov. 2009. Our county listed that we live in is Denton & the school district is Northwest. We live south of 114 & east of 156. Our subdivision is off of 114, just about 2 miles west of Texas Motor Speedway. Is there anything I can do to only pay one county tax?

You're not paying two sets of county taxes. My guess is that Tarrant County is handling the tax collection for Northwest ISD and that's why you're getting a bill from them.

The same thing happens to people who live in Denton County but are in Frisco ISD. Collin County collects that portion of their tax bill.

You are probably paying city tax (Fort Worth) to Tarrant County and School/County tax to Denton county. I pay the same way.

Same here pretty much. I pay Dallas County taxes and Coppell city and school taxes.

unless your property actually sits astride two counties' lines you won't pay two property taxes--and even then you pay PROPORTIONATELY--if 10% of the property was in one county and 90% in the other--that would be the amount you would pay on each portion--not 100% to each county--you are not being double taxes which is apparently what you think

so as someone said
Northwest ISD tax is collected/apportioned via the Tarrant county tax appraisal district for where ever Northwest residents live--
check your TAD.org info--it will show who collects taxes on your property

Sounds like you live in Chadwick Farms. Moderator cut: not allowed and it does tend to be confusing at times.

SMUJeremy is correct. It's the school district and emergency services that Fort Worth provides that cause both the tax statements to occur.

because part of your property falls under dallas county tax authorities--
if you have a question why don't you contact the county appraisal district which is sending the tax notice
