Property Taxes and HOA Dues

The property taxes in Marcello Lakes are assessed by the Harris 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 (2024), the average property tax rate is 3.40%. Because of the differences in the age of homes here, 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 $13,600 / year in property taxes. ($400,000 / $100 = $4,000 x 3.40 = $13,600. This of course does not tax into account homestead, over 65, and other tax exemptions that offer considerable tax savings. Read more about how property taxes work in our area.
