Property Taxes and HOA Dues

The property taxes in Grand Lakes are assessed by the Fort Bend County Appraisal District. The total tax rate is comprised of several different taxing entities depending on which part of the community you live in. These will typically include the school district, the mud district, and county or city services but could even vary based on section.

As of the time of this writing (2022), the average property tax rate is 2.4142%. Because of the differences in the age of homes in Grand Lakes, as well as varying taxing entities, this rate could be lower or higher. The rates are applied to each $100 of a home’s value.

For example, a $400,000 home could expect to pay $9,657 / year in property taxes. ($400,000 / $100 = $4,000 x 2.4142 = $9,657. This of course does not tax into account homestead, over 65, and other tax exemptions. Read more about how property taxes work in our area.

* As a side note, as of the time of this writing there is a bill sitting on the governors desk for approval (which he’s expected to sign) that would provide the most sweeping property tax reforms in State history. These changes would save the average homeowner over $1,300 in property taxes.

As of the time of this writing, the average annual HOA Dues for Grand Lakes are $1,050 / year. In the Katy area, for a master planned community, those are considered fairly average, particularly considering the sheer amount of amenities available to its residents.
