The Board of Directors of Harris County MUD 208 (the district) voted to decrease the 2019 MUD Property Tax Rate to $0.405 per $100 valuation. The total tax rate consists of $0.085 per $100 valuation to pay the District’s debt service and $0.32 per $100 valuation to fund maintenance and operation expenditures for the next year. Please keep in mind this rate is for the district only. Other entities, including the county, school district, hospital district, etc., set their own rates.
The Board of Directors also authorized Bob Leared Interests, the tax assessor-collector for the district, to mail duplicate tax statements in January 2020. These statements will be mailed to homeowners whose original tax statement was requested by and mailed to a mortgage company AND remains unpaid at the time of the January mailing. If you receive a DUPLICATE TAX STATEMENT, this is your reminder to contact your mortgage company to ensure their timely payment of your MUD taxes by January 31, 2020. If you receive a statement, but escrow your taxes, it is your responsibility to forward the tax statement on to your mortgage company.
