New Census Data on Property Taxes on Homeowners
Tax Foundation

October, 2009

The Census Bureau has released new housing numbers courtesy of the 2008 American Community Survey (ACS), which includes real estate taxes paid on owner-occupied housing units. Data is included for many geographical units, including states and high-population counties.1, 2

The Tax Foundation has long published historical data on property tax collections compiled by the Census Bureau's Government Finances division. However, such data includes not only taxes paid by individual homeowners, but also property taxes paid by businesses, as well as some special types of property pertaining to minerals or fuels found mostly in a handful of states, such as Texas, Wyoming and Alaska. When people want to know where property taxes are the highest, though, they typically wonder about property taxes levied specifically on homeowners. This is where the ACS data is useful.

We Love Animals

Lou Bailey, Director of Alumni Relations and Planned Giving at St. Stephen's Episcopal School in Austin, sent us this adorable photo of her rat terrier, Roo...complete with reading glasses!

Dixie Neeley, the Founder of the Triple Me Mac Equine Sanctuary in Bulverde, rescued this off-the-track thoroughbred from a boys ranch. Malt & Jam was starved and had a broken shoulder. The picture was taken last summer - he is totally healed and healthy!

The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary recently became home to two tiny American black bear cubs, one male and one female, who were found abandoned in their wild Alaska. These two were young, helpless, and unable to survive on their own. As such, they were transported to their new forever home in Texas. At IEAS, they will have 1.5 acres of forest, meadow, and grass to thrive in. With the help of Emotional Enrichment, they will learn to find security and trust in their new family. IEAS staff is eager and excited to make the lives of these cubs as amazing as possible, and they can't wait to watch them live like wild bears in a safe, caring environment!
