Property Values Up In Bexar County, Sales Taxes Rise As Pandemic Recovery Continues

The chief appraiser of the Bexar Appraisal District reports property appraisal protests may reach , this year as property values rise.

The pandemic did not slow a hot housing market, according to local officials.

Chief Appraiser Michael Amezquita said local property appraisals rose an average 8% locally, but some popular neighborhood properties around the city rose as much as 30%.

The higher the appraisal, the higher the property taxes that follow, but Amezquita points out his office does not set the property tax rate, local governments do.

It's not just locals who try to outbid each other for a new home. Amezquita says there's a lot of outside interest in the local housing market

"We don't have enough supply. We have an incredible amount of demand. I was just reading some information from SABOR (The San Antonio Board of Realtors) the other day. It's something like 42% of the population that is shopping for a home in San Antonio isn't from San Antonio," he said.

Amezquita encourages property owners to file protests online and arrange hearings by phone or Zoom. Learn more at bcad.org.

Home shopping is not the only thing on the rise in San Antonio, shopping in general is making a comeback, according to sales tax refund figures for March from the state comptroller's office.

The city received $41 million from the state or an increase of 33% over March of Sales tax gains from restaurants and retailers led the way, the comptroller said.

San Antonio's economic comeback is outpacing other Texas cities, too. Austin sales tax collections were up 26% in March, compared to the same month last year.
Dallas was up 25% and Houston rose 22% in the same comparison

Sales tax refunds to Olmos Park led San Antonio's suburban cities in March, up 50%.

San Antonio also beat the statewide increase of 28%.

The state collected a total of $ billion in sales taxes in March. City sales taxes are collected by the state and then returned to cities.

March sales taxes were collected in April and reported earlier this month by the state comptroller.

Bexar Appraisal District lands first among San Antonio's mid-size employers

Click through the slideshow above to see other finalists from the mid-size employer category.

Top Workplaces Small employers

Top Workplaces Large employers

How the Top Workplaces program works


Just after Michael Amezquita became chief appraiser at the Bexar Appraisal District in , an external review found the organization had 82 “material defects” — problems ranging from management practices to employee compensation.

“All the things that can make an organization dysfunctional,” Amezquita said.

Now, 17 years later, the Bexar Appraisal District was voted the Top Workplace among midsize employers in San Antonio, even as the pandemic has kept most of the organization’s employees out of the office for the past six months.

The Bexar Appraisal District finished as the best workplace among 21 midsize employers on the list. Last year, the district finished 12th on the list of top workplaces in its category.

“We want to repeat, we want to sustain, but one of things that’s really cool was last year was our first year to win, we were in the top … We didn’t want to just win an award. We took feedback and started making changes,” Amezquita said. “It kind of gives you an introspective look at yourself as a manager and the management team.”

This year, the appraisal district was followed on the Top Workplaces list by JBGoodwin REALTORS. The local real estate firm won the top spot in

Jon Wayne Service Co. finished third on the list year after placing second last year.

The city of Fair Oaks Ranch was the only government employer aside from the appraisal district to place on the list of Top Workplaces of any size in the past two years.

Amezquita attributes the Bexar Appraisal District’s ascent to the top ranks of local employers to improvements that followed that review at the start of his tenure.

He also lauds the district’s fleet-footed approach to working with Bexar County taxpayers.

“We used that (review) as our very first tool to teach ourselves how to remake ourselves,” Amezquita said. “One of the things that makes us so successful is we have down-up communication, so everybody from maintenance staff to my first assistant, they’re all welcome into my office.”

The Bexar Appraisal District employs people. The organization determines the fair market value at which property is taxed.

Typically, after the appraisal district sets a property’s value, property owners can contest the value to lower their tax liability.

The organization was preparing to send notices to property owners when the pandemic hit in March.

But after revamping the agency’s online system, Amezquita said the property value protest process has been as smooth as ever.

“These last six months, taxpayers have really responded very favorably, as have my staff. We more than doubled our online appeals usage,” Amezquita said.

He said the district expanded from being able to handle 40 incoming calls to as many as , and it expanded its Zoom and Webex online systems.

The district received , property value protests, which was more than last year. More than 90 percent of residents’ protests have been resolved, the same rate as last year.

“So in-person versus online or telephone really is about the same, except because of the pandemic, I’m able to keep my staff and taxpayers safe,” Amezquita said.

The appraisal district has done its work socially distanced in recent months, including appraisers meeting in the field from a safe distance.

But an investment a few years ago to upgrade the Bexar Appraisal District’s online system paid dividends during the pandemic.

With that upgrade, employees were equipped to work from home when the coronavirus emerged in San Antonio — a setup the district may continue beyond the pandemic.

“I envision going forward, one of the things that will be part of the permanent work schedule is allowing staff to work from home 50 percent of the time. We’re doing that now,” Amezquita said. “We were going to need a bigger building, but perhaps with a work from home schedule 50/50, days out of the year, maybe we can put that off for five to 10 years.”

Employees at the Bexar Appraisal District receive a benefit package that includes medical, vision, dental and life insurance, training and education courses, and a retirement plan.

“We still pay percent of employees’ health insurance, and we have a wonderful retirement system that we fund,” Amezquita said. “I always tell young folks, especially millennials, ‘Give me 10 years of your life, and I'll give you a retirement that will last you a very long time.’”

Amezquita said a big part of the appraisal district’s work is dispelling misinformation. The appraisal district does not set the property tax rate; it only establishes property values.

One employee told of appreciating the process of educating property owners.

“After being absent for the workforce for about eight years, Bexar Appraisal has shown me why I enjoy customer service,” the employee said. “I feel that when I help a customer with their questions and concerns that they leave Bexar Appraisal with a sense of relief and better understanding of their rights as a homeowner and with there taxes.”

Another employee said: “I love my job because we all have the same mission, the same genuine goal, which is to help the property owner. Management cares about us as (people) and as professionals, allowing us to grow individually to our potentials.”

Customer Service in San Antonio, TX

I hated it there!

The manager are not very compassionate. They lack empathy and understanding for their employees. If they don’t like you, they don’t like you. Doesn’t matter how nice you are too them, or how hard you work, they will get rid of you. They don’t care. It is about them and not the customers.

Senior Residential Appraiser in San Antonio, TX

Toxic culture / management

RE: the Residential Appraiser position - the appraisal field work (new construction and permits) is fairly easy and it’s nice to be out of the office; calibration season is monotonous months of spreadsheets and number crunching; the protest season is stressful because you’re dealing with upset and uninformed property owners all day. The compensation is average, but management sells the idea that the retirement is the greatest benefit offered - unfortunately you only vest in the retirement if you stay for 10+ years and most can’t deal with the toxic culture that long. Management and the culture they’ve created is a major issue. Another reviewer compared it to being in high school and that's a spot-on assessment, it’s very cliquish. Advancement is all about who you know and/or who you’re related to - the “good ole boy” system is very much in effect. Everyone is not treated equally and behavior expectations are wildly inconsistent from person to person. Whether it was wandering around the building chatting or production numbers, what’s acceptable depends largely on who your friends are - and if you’re not “in” with management, be careful. Don't expect to advance, lots of politics involved with promoting and the most qualified person doesn’t always get the position. There is no incentive to excel, and employees that do the bare minimum get the same salary as the ones that hustle - the only thing you get if you’re efficient, is to do the work of the people who aren’t. Regardless of your production numbers management will find something to use against you on your yearly evaluation to prevent you from getting a higher increase. Employee morale is consistently low - again unless you're with the "in” crowd. Inconsistent values: management says they value their employees, but if there’s ever a complaint they won't support you. Hope this helps, Good luck.

Not a great place to work

Belittled employees. Showed one face to public; however, behind closed doors it was a different story. There is nothing good to say about a company that does not value an employee that actually works in their position.

I liked working here good pay and benefits. The schedule is set and not a lot of room for shift work so going to school and working here can be a challenge.

Property Tax Information

Taxing jurisdiction  

The governing body of each taxing jurisdiction certifies their annual budget and adopts a tax rate that will generate the necessary revenue to pay for the services they provide to the public (e.g.: public schools, community health services, fire and police protection, streets, roads, flood control projects, etc.).  In Texas, property taxes are the major source of funding for taxing jurisdictions.  It is important to note that not utilizing their services will not exempt a property from taxation.

Prior to adopting their tax rate, the Texas Constitution requires the taxing jurisdictions to follow legislative guidelines and hold public hearings to discuss any increases in their proposed tax rate.  These legislative guidelines allow citizens (in certain cases) to rollback or limit any increases in the tax rate.  As a taxpayer, you are strongly encouraged to attend one or more of these hearings.

collection of taxes

The final phase of the taxation process begins on October 1 of each year.  The Tax Assessor-Collector is responsible for assessing property taxes in accordance with the value and exemptions certified by the appraisal district, and rates adopted by each of the taxing jurisdictions.

Unless exempt by law, all real and business personal property are taxable.  In addition to Bexar County and the Flood Control Fund, the Office of Albert Uresti, Bexar County Tax Assessor-Collector, has a contractual agreement to collect and disburse property taxes for 56 separate taxing jurisdictions.  All properties are taxed by Bexar County, Flood Control, Alamo Community College, University Health System, San Antonio River Authority, and one of the independent school districts.

There may also be an additional tax for cities or towns and special districts.  Pursuant with the Texas Property Tax Code, property taxes are due (with the exception of split or quarter pay accounts) on January 31st of the year following the year the taxes were imposed.  The Tax Code requires that all past due accounts be assessed penalty and interest. If the tax notice is not requested by a mortgage company or agent, the statement will be mailed in October to the owner and address of record.

It is important to note that in accordance to Section (g) of the Texas Property Tax Code, the failure to send or receive a tax notice does not affect the validity of the tax, penalty, or interest; the due date; the existence of the tax lien; or any procedure instituted to collect the tax.  It is also important to mention that accounts less than or equal to $15 are withheld until the aggregate (total) amount is greater than $  If you ever fail to receive a tax notice or would like to request a duplicate, please feel free to contact our Information Center at  You may also check your account balance by visiting our website.

Process Overview

You may obtain a more comprehensive overview of the taxation process by visiting the website of the Property Tax Division of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.

APPRAISAL DISTRICTS

The Bexar Appraisal District sets your property values.  In Texas, appraisal districts are responsible for identifying and appraising properties for ad valorem purposes.  In Latin, ad valorem translates into "according to value."  Pursuant with the Texas Property Tax Code, properties are taxed according to their fair market value.  For example, the tax on a property appraised at $10, will be ten times greater than a property valued at $1,

In the event a property owner disagrees with their assessed value, a protest may be filed with their appraisal district.  For additional information regarding the appeal process, please contact the Bexar Appraisal District at to speak to one of their appraisers.

As a property owner, your most important right is your right to protest your assessed value.  The deadline each year is May 15th or 30 days after the notice is mailed, whichever is later.  Additional functions of the appraisal district are to determine the current ownership, administer applicable exemptions, and calculate tax ceilings.  As a property owner, you are responsible for ensuring that your property is listed accurately with your correct name, current mailing address, property description, and exemptions.

For corrections, please contact the appraisal district.  Any corrections by their agency will be forwarded to the Bexar County Tax Assessor-Collector.  You may also download applications, forms, or additional information by visiting the Bexar Appraisal District website.
