For Immediate Release: Press Release for Reappraisal of Qualified Homes
At the November 30, 2017 regular meeting of the Montgomery County Emergency Services
District #7, the board voted on and passed unanimously, that homes within the territorial boundaries
of MCESD#1 that qualify and were damaged by Hurricane Harvey flood waters will be reappraised
for their 2017 MCESD#7 ad valorem taxes based off the current market valuations and conditions
of their homes. The County Tax Assessor estimates roughly 463 damaged homes within our
territorial boundaries will qualify for a reappraisal allowing those who have already paid their 2017
MCESD#7 ad valorem taxes to receive a refund based off of this reappraisal. Those homes who have
not paid their 2017 MCESD#7 ad valorem taxes yet will get an updated reappraisal of their home
based off the current market and condition and will pay that amount.
The Montgomery County Emergency Services District #7 understands the amount of
devastation and financial burdens that Hurricane Harvey has put on the tax payers of MCESD#7.
The loss and damage of property from this storm will take years to rebuild and recover. That's why
the MCESD#7 board unanimously decided this was the right thing to do. Though our fiscal budget
is underway for 2018 we estimate a levy loss from what was originally voted on and approved in
our operations budget due to this reappraisal. Rest assured MCESD#7 and the East Montgomery
County Fire Department are fiscally responsible with taxpayer's money and we will make the
proper amendments to our budget that are necessary to continue and provide the best fire protection,
with this loss of taxable ad valorem income to the district.
If we can be of any assistance in this process to you or if you have any questions, please
don't hesitate to contact us or the County Tax Assessor.
