Error cost local utility district tens of thousands of dollars over 18 years
By LESLEE BASSMAN, Four Points News
During the Dec. 19 meeting of the River Place Limited District board of directors, members discussed Travis Central Appraisal District’s failure to include eight River Place homes in the former River Place Municipal Utility District’s tax rolls for the past 18 years. Therefore, the homeowners of these properties have not paid MUD ad valorem taxes since 2000, the year the parcels were annexed into the district, said Patrick Reilly, president of the River Place Limited District.
“A homeowner at the River Place Homeowners Association annual meeting came up to me and inquired about why he was being charged MUD taxes and one of his neighbors did not appear to be charged taxes by the MUD,” said Scott Crosby, board member of the River Place Limited District. “I went in and looked at several addresses on Travis County’s website and found that was in fact the case.”
