How do I get the best tax rate for my home?

My property is mortgaged. Do I pay the taxes?

Who determines the amount of taxes I pay?

How often does the Assessor inspect my property?

Who is responsible for the taxes if a property is sold after December 31?

I've sold this property. What should I do with the tax bill?

What if I change my mailing address?

I agree with the appraised value, but I'm afraid my taxes will go up accordingly. Should I appeal my value because I feel my taxes will increase?

I am not sure my vacant lot is buildable since a septic tank is required. What is the basis for receiving a lower assessment from the Assessor?

I did my own construction work to save money, but the appraised value (assessment) increased more than my actual cost. Should my assessment reflect the actual cost?

What happens if I buy a mobile home on which the taxes are not paid?

How do I change my mobile home to permanent dwelling?
