One of the primary responsibilities of the Office of Cathy C. Talcott, PCC, Comal County Tax Assessor-Collector, is to collect, record and disburse property taxes.
The Property Tax Department of the Comal County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office is responsible for collecting, recording, and disbursing property taxes for eighteen (18) Jurisdictions. The Tax Office maintains over 110,000 tax accounts; collecting and disbursing over $164 million in property taxes annually.
When the certified tax roll is received from the Comal County Appraisal District, the property values are loaded on the Tax Office's computer system. The certified tax roll and the tax rates adopted by each taxing jurisdiction are used to levy the current property taxes in October of each year. Tax statements are then generated and mailed to property owners and mortgage companies.
Current taxes that remain unpaid as of February 1 of the year following the year in which imposed are delinquent and are assessed penalty and interest. Taxes that remain delinquent on July 1 of the year in which they become delinquent may incur an additional penalty of up to 20% to defray costs of collection.
The Tax Office disburses the taxes to the various taxing entities for which it serves as collector.
