Assessment and Collection of Taxes


Except as provided by Subsection (b), the county tax assessor-collector shall collect any tax imposed under this subchapter unless the commission employs a tax assessor and collector for the district. The county tax assessor-collector shall charge and deduct from taxes collected for the district a fee for collecting the tax in an amount determined by the commission, not to exceed the county tax assessor-collector’s usual and customary charges for the collection of similar taxes.


If determined by the commission to be appropriate, the commission may contract for the assessment and collection of taxes in the manner provided by Title 1, Tax Code, for the assessment and collection of ad valorem taxes.


Revenue from a fee charged by a county tax assessor-collector for collecting the tax shall be deposited in the county general fund and, if appropriate, shall be reported as fees of the county tax assessor-collector.
