As of July 21, 15 counties had completed the 2020 Unfunded Mandates Survey.
County auditors and treasurers who did not receive an email about the TAC survey should check their email spam filter or their Clutter folder in Microsoft Outlook. Look for “Texas Association of Counties <firstname.lastname@example.org>” in the “From” field.
The survey was developed in collaboration with the Texas Association of County Auditors, the County Treasurers' Association of Texas, the Texas Conference of Urban Counties and the County Judges and Commissioners Association of Texas. The survey collects information on the costs to counties from selected state and federal unfunded and partially funded mandates. The information is used to inform legislators about the financial impact that such mandates can have on counties and, consequently, on county property taxes.
Results from the 2018 survey can be found on the TAC website.
Email Tim Brown with questions about the survey. A copy of the survey form is available online; however, please use the link in your emailed survey invitation to submit responses.
