Notice of 2017 Tax Year Proposed Property Tax Rate for City of Katy 

City property taxes become due on October 1 and taxpayers have until January 31 of the following year to pay their tax bill before taxes become delinquent. It is each taxpayer’s responsibility to seek out all taxes due, as failure to send or receive a tax bill does not affect the validity of the tax, penalty, interest, due date, existence of a tax lien or any procedure instituted to collect a tax.

Appraisal is based on market value as of January of the tax year. If you have any questions regarding your property value, contact the appraisal district for the county where the property is located. Property appraisals in the City are provided by the Waller County Appraisal District (979-921-0060), the Fort Bend County Appraisal District (281-344-8623) and the Harris County Appraisal District (713-957-7800).
