Over the weekend, the Bastrop Central Appraisal District began to estimate values on the homes that were burned down in the Labor Day wildfires.
Nearly 1,700 houses, mobile homes and duplexes(six percent of the residential homes) were destroyed in the wildfire. The numbers were then be reported to the county and the school districts, which are mainly funded by property taxes.
The homes that were destroyed account for nearly $4.4 billion taxable properties. Local auditors have estimated that the county’s budget will shrink by $1.3 million as a result. Some are worried that taxes may have to be raised in order to make up for difference.
