Taxes: Understanding Your Tax Bill

Why Taxes?

Horizon Regional Municipal Utility District was created by legislation in 1961 as El Paso County Water Authority. The District consists of roughly 91,000 acres or an equivalent of 14219 square miles. There are an estimated 150,000 seperate properties within the boundaries of the District.

The District is governed by an elected, five-member board of directors serving four-year staggered terms. Elections are held in even years. To qualify as a director one must either reside and/or own property within the District. Regulation of activities of the District and its board is held by the legislature and more directly, by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC).

The District was originally created as a conservation and reclamation district; however an order converting the District to a Municipal Utility District was signed July 14, 1989. This order signed by the TNRCC, then the Texas Water Commission, gave the District powers as described in Chapter 54, Texas Water Code, as a municipal utility district. and it also continues as a conservation and reclamation district operating under the provisions of Article 16, Section 59. in the Texas Constitution.

The laws that established the water district also established it as a taxing authority. The taxes collected are used by the District to construct offside water and wastewater infrastructure in support of the entire utility system. This infrastructure includes water wells, water tanks, water and wastewater treatment plants, water pumping stations and sewage lift stations. The water and wastewater rates were last increased in September of 1995. The Tax Rate was last increased September 2001.

The current tax rate

Our 2018 tax rate is $0.554355 per $100.00 of assessed valuation for debt servicepurposesand $0.189207per $100 assessed operation/maintenance purposes.

How “appraised value ” affects your tax bill

To obtain your appraised value, the District has contracted with the El Paso Central Appraisal District to be the taxing authority that bills for, collects and sets the appraisal values of the property within the district. This allows the District to save money for its customers by utilizing the staff of the El Paso Central Appraisal District. The newly appraised value of the property is then multiplied times the tax rate and a new tax amount is billed by the El Paso Central Appraisal District. All monies collected on District property is deposited into the bank account of the District.

However, the value of the properties within the District continues to increase due to population growth and new home construction within the District. New home construction, usually built with higher labor and material cost, raises the average value of all homes.

If you have any further questions on the Horizon Regional portion of your tax bill, please call the Horizon Regional Municipal Utility District manager at (915) 852-3917.
