Payments will be date stamped with the previous business days date. If a payment is mailed, we suggest that proof of mailing be obtained from the post office. Any payments postmarked after the due date will incur penalties and interest.

Rate Surveys

CLCWA conducted a recent Water Rate Survey and a Tax Rate Survey compared to surrounding cities.

Receive Tax Statements By Email:

Texas Property Tax Code has been amended by HB843 to allow for the delivery of tax bills by electronic means, effective 1/01/2012. If a tax bill is sent by e-mail, the Law does not require the tax bill also to be sent by mail. The Law requires that an agreement be signed by the Assessor and the Individual or Entity entitled to receive the tax bill. The agreement remains in effect for all subsequent tax bills until revoked by an authorized individual in a written revocation filed with the Assessor.

If you wish to receive your tax bill by e-mail, please complete the agreement and return the original (no copies) executed agreement to Clear Lake City Water Authority, Attention: Tax Assessor, 900 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, TX 77058.

Electronic Tax Statement Request Form

You can also sign up on our website by accessing your account and selecting the e-statement sign up tab. The deadline to submit the request is September 15th.
