Charles Y Armstrong Broker Capital Ranch SalesA NOTE FROM YOUR LAND BROKER, CHARLES

Spring has sprung… Well, almost! The actual “first day of spring” is March 19, but we have been blessed with warmer weather and some much-needed sunshine.

The seasonal change always serves as a good reminder that if you’re a landowner in the state of Texas (and if you’re not, you should be!), your Ag/Wildlife property tax valuations are due soon. How soon? April 30, 2024.

If you’re a new land owner, your county is on rotation, or if you transferred your property into a partnership or new entity, then make sure to fill out your application to receive the reduced property tax evaluation benefits. If you have any questions on this topic, please check out the link below, or don’t hesitate to contact me so that I can help you with this process.

The real estate market continues to stay hot, and our team at Capital Ranch Sales is constantly bringing new properties to market and getting our buyers and sellers under contract on ranches. Give me a call or shoot me an email if you’re considering buying or selling, and let’s discuss your real estate goals.

Thank you for your continued support!

Property taxes, also known as ad valorem taxes, are assessed and collected on real property at the local level to fund a variety of local governmental functions including public schools, roads, police, fire, and other and emergency services.

Knowing how these legal layers relate to one another is helpful to understanding when land qualifies for taxation as open-spaced land devoted to wildlife management use. The Texas Constitution grants powers to the state and places limitations on how that power can be exercised, including limitations on how open-spaced land may be taxed.
