SAN ANTONIO – The Office of the Bexar County Tax Assessor-Collector said Tuesday that it plans to send out 4,000 overpayment and adjust refund checks to Bexar County citizens to help in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

“With an unprecedented increase in unemployment, layoffs, and reduction of hours, these refund disbursements could not be coming at a better time,” said Bexar County Tax Assessor-Collector Albert Uresti. “As always, our staff continues to identify and process overpayments and adjustments so that these refunds are not delayed to our taxpayers. Our goal is to put this money back in the pockets of property owners who may need it most.”

The office has closed it’s lobbies due to the pandemic, but it is continuing to operate and is encouraging citizens to use online, telephone, mail and 24-hour dropbox services.
