Agenda Item
Discuss, consider and take appropriate action on a resolution authorizing the Presiding Officer of the Williamson County Commissioners Court to execute a Deed without Warranty from the City of Taylor, Texas, and Williamson County, Texas to The Housing Authority of the City of Taylor, Williamson County pertaining to Lot 16, Block 1, Frink-Jones Addition, City of Taylor particularly described in Volume 193, Page 485 of the Deed Records and Document No. 2009070374 (Tax Account R017141). And Lot 13, Block 114, City of Taylor, Williamson County particularly described in Volume 312, Page 483 and Volume 333, Page 275 SAVE AND EXCEPT that property described in Volume 2720, Page 659 of the Deed Records and Document No. 2009041705 (Tax Account R015801).

In 2007 & 2008, Williamson County filed two lawsuits to collect delinquent property taxes on behalf of itself, Taylor Independent School District, and the City of Taylor, Texas. In 2009, judgments were signed ordering foreclosure of the tax liens on property tax accounts R015807 and R017141. Pursuant to the Property Tax Code, the properties were offered for sale at a public auction. The properties did not receive bids and were taken into trust by the City of Taylor for the use and benefit of all other taxing jurisdictions. These two properties have been held in trust with an exempt status since 2009 and have therefore been completely exempt from taxation since.

The Taylor Housing Authority has proposed to purchase the properties for a sum of $50.00. The properties would be used for residential single-family development in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. After the residences are built, the property will be conveyed to the new owner, returning the properties to the tax roll with an increased value. By accepting this offer, the County is removing this property from exempt tax status, meaning the property will once again generate tax revenue for all the applicable taxing units listed above.

 For the reasons stated herein, it is my recommendation to accept this offer by the Taylor Housing Authority.
