Fort Bend County Residents To Receive Property Tax Reduction

Fort Bend County residents can look forward to a slight reduction in their 2020 property tax rates.

County Judge K.P. George announced this past Tuesday that the rate has been lowered from last year's 44-cents per 100-dollars evaluation to 42-cents.

George noted that real property tax relief would require lowering property appraisals to their 2019 levels. The latest appraisals were calculated in January.

He says the rate reduction won't undercut public services such as police, EMS, and road maintenance.
