Guadalupe County Assessor's Office
The Assessor manages a professional, courteous staff who provide for the residents and businesses of Guadalupe County.

By ensuring these activities are completed in an accurate and timely manner results in fair and equitable assessments for real and personal property at a reasonable cost and a well-maintained, current tax base upon which local government can base tax levies. There is also a maximum of two terms for one individual.

The 1981 Legislature approved a lower property tax rate for residential property for Tax Years 1981 and subsequent years. In order for this to apply for this tax year, the property owner must declare that portion of his or her property, land and buildings, that is residential. If this form is not filled with the county assessor by the last day of February, then the property will be presumed to be nonresidential and will be taxed accordingly. Residential property is either a home, mobile home or apartment(s) and the land underlying the structures suitable for human habitation. That portion of the description of property which meets this definition is eligible for the classification of Residential Property.
