LOL!  Not the most popular neighbor at the yearly picnic I bet.  Oopsie!

Current Austin City Council members only recently became aware of the exemption after a couple who own a $3.7 million home on the north shores of Lake Austin, abutting the eastern edge of Emma Long Park, found out they were not getting the same deal as their neighbors. The couple sued and council members learned that what they initially thought was an isolated error included numerous homes.

This right here:

Quote

“We have low-income homeowners selling their houses if they can’t afford property taxes, and parts of West Austin aren’t paying any city taxes on their multimillion-dollar homes at all?” Council Member Greg Casar said. “It’s just indefensible and it’s time to fix it.”

 

In general, I think it's BS for the city to say you won't pay taxes but you will get no services in unincorporated areas.  The reality is that EMS and AFD will respond where needed and when needed.
