In Spring Texas, the real estate tax rate is a combination of the tax rates of the school district, the county, and the MUD. The GOOD NEWS is the tax rates for each of these taxing entities have either declined or remained the same over the last couple of years. The BAD NEWS is the property values for Spring Texas homes have increased over the same time frame. Since the increase in property values has been higher than the decline in the tax rate, the net result is a higher instead of a lower property tax bill.
Below are charts showing the school district, county, and MUD tax rates over the last couple of years. All tax rates are per $100 of tax assessed value.
The tax rates represented for Harris County and Montgomery County include the county’s base tax rate and the tax rates for the flood control district, the port of Houston authority, the hospital district, the department of education, the Lone Star college district, and the emergency services district. The tax rates represented DO NOT include the homestead exemption as not all property owners qualify for a homestead exemption. Harris County offers a homestead exemption. Montgomery County DOES NOT offer a homestead exemption.
The MUD tax rates represented are for Montgomery County MUD 94 which provides service to the Spring Trails subdivision, Harris County MUD 383 which provides service to the Gleannloch Farms subdivision, and Harris County MUD 32 which provides service to the Windrose subdivision.

She is THE best agent we have ever had in our past moves, and I have similar feedback from my colleagues whom she helped moving to Houston this summer.
We really were impressed by her knowledge about the Houston housing market and related policy, and she was always there to answer the questions we had. She was very quick to find out what we really wanted, and walked with us home by home very patiently till we found the one we like. She spent many hours with us in the design center, making suggestions from carpet colors to light fixtures. Since we moved from other states and were not in town when the house was being built, she walked through the house and sent us progress photos everyweek. Mostly impressively, she worked hard to deal with the builder on the progress and quality issues on our behalf, and in the final home walkthrough, we were amazed at the details she helped to capture and ensured the builder fix the punchlist item timely.
All in all, we are very happy to have Jill help us. We recommend JIll extremely highly, and would not hesitate to seek her help if we were in the market again. read less
