This simulator helps to illustrate how changes to City services affect our City budget, property tax bills, and utility rates. For this exercise, your estimated combined annual property tax and utility bill is calculated by adding your estimated City of Austin property tax bill with the annual utility bill for the Typical Residential Ratepayer.
If you are a homeowner, enter your assessed property value below to estimate your property tax bill. If you don’t own a home or are not sure of your property’s current assessed value, you can use the median non-senior homestead assessed property value of $251,994 or input the value of your choice. For example, if you are a renter, you can input the estimated property value of your house or unit.
