City Taxes

Property Tax

The City's property tax rate is set, by Ordinance, annually by the City Council in September of each year. For a view of the current and past year's budget and property (also known as ad-valorem) tax rate visit the Finance Department.  

The City contracts with the Bexar County Tax Office for the billing and collection of ALL CITY property taxes, regardless of the county of residence. City tax statements are mailed in October of each year and become delinquent the first day of February of the following tax year.
