Tax Matters

Each year, the Harris County Appraisal District sets the value of property for ad valorem tax purposes for property located within the boundaries of Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 500 (Harris County MUD 500). Local taxing units such as the county, school district, and water district use total property valuation to help guide decisions about tax rates when determining how to meet monetary requirements each year. For any questions concerning the valuation of your property, contact the Harris County Appraisal District, at
