Tax Assessor-Collectors and staff attended the 39th Annual V.G. Young School for County Tax Assessor-Collectors in November in Round Rock. The agenda included robust discussions on a variety of changes resulting from the 87th Legislature’s regular and three special sessions. Subjects discussed included statutory changes to voter registration, vehicle title and registration, and property tax laws.
The closing general session featured Rep. Hugh Shine (R-Houston), who provided an overview of his property tax legislation, key takeaways from the multiple legislative sessions and what he believes we can anticipate moving forward. Following his remarks, the Tax Assessor-Collectors Association of Texas (TACA) presented him with a Legislative Leadership Award for his support in working with tax assessors on legislative issues.
