During Commissioners Court Monday morning, Commissioner Stuart Knowlton, Precinct 2, advised citizens to double check their property surveys to ensure they are being taxed properly by the Atascosa Central Appraisal District. His advisement came upon receiving a complaint from a concerned citizen about their land survey. If you own property that is adjacent to a county road or state highway, please double check your surveys.
“The citizen lives off FM 3175. The survey of their property went out to the center of the road and the Appraisal District was charging taxes on the entire size of the property, including half of the state highway,” explained Comm. Knowlton.
He emphasized that should any property owners with a significant amount of land adjacent to a state highway or county road suspect their property is being appraised to the middle of the road, they should contact the Appraisal District.
“This was a significant amount of acreage this one property owner was being charged for including half of the state highway for about half or a full mile down the road.”
Should any Atascosa County residents have any questions or suspicions about their surveys, they are encouraged to reach out to the Atascosa Central Appraisal District as soon as possible. They are located inside the old Pleasanton Elementary School building at 624 N. Main St. in Pleasanton. You can also give them a call at 830- 569-8326 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
