The Board of Directors of Fry Road MUD (the district) voted to decrease the MUD Property Tax Rate of $0.44 per $100 valuation for the 2018 tax year to $0.43 per $100 valuation. Please keep in mind this rate is for the district only. Other entities, including the county, school district, hospital district, etc., set their own rates each year.
The district also authorized Bob Leared Interests, the tax assessor-collector, to mail duplicate tax statements in January 2019. These statements will be mailed to homeowners whose original tax statement was requested by and mailed to a mortgage company AND remains unpaid at the time of the January mailing. If you receive a DUPLICATE TAX STATEMENT, this is your reminder to contact your mortgage company to ensure timely payment of your MUD taxes by January 31, 2019.
