Pledge

The Tax Assessor plays a critical role in calculating tax rates for the county, and collecting fees for both state and local governments.

 

J.J.'s pledge to Fort Bend County:

"As a professional internal auditor, with more than fifteen years experience in accounting, financial, operational and SOX audits, I am uniquely qualified to lead our county’s effort to ensure taxes are collected fairly and efficiently.

As your next tax assessor-collector, I pledge to:

  1. Calculate county property tax rates fairly and transparently
  2. Collect property taxes efficiently and equitably
  3. Ensure efficient collection of taxes for other local governments, including cities, schools and other local taxing entities

I will do all this while making sure taxes for individual Fort Bend County residents and business are kept lower because they are collected efficiently and fairly.

You deserve an experienced, no-nonsense financial professional to lead tax collection in one of the fastest-growing counties in America.

I have the experience and proven records for the job!"
