What residents need to know

Under the new tax rate, a home that has an assessed value of $220,000 with the $40,000 homestead exemption will result in the homeowners paying an estimated $1,862 in taxes to Judson ISD.

Should this item pass and go into effect on Jan. 1, homeowners will see a decrease in taxes paid. Tax rate values depend on assessed home value and other exemptions homeowners may qualify for.
