County and area taxing entities have received the proposed 2019-20 budgets for the Montague County Tax Appraisal District with several already approving the documents.
Kim Haralson, chief appraiser, made the recent presentation to the city of Bowie and the county commissioner’s court noting a .48 percent increase in the appraisal budget and no increase in the tax collections budget. Both entities gave their approval to the budgets.
The appraisal district budget touches every taxing entity in the county and a few of the neighboring counties where school districts or watersheds extend. The MCTAD is responsible for appraising all property in the county and related overlapping districts. Read the full story in the weekend Bowie News.
