Property taxes are assessed per $100 value of real and personal property. State law establishes the process to determine property values to ensure they are equal and uniform.
Residents and businesses pay property taxes to the city of Pecos, Reeves County, Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District (PBTISD) and the Reeves County Hospital District. This is the most significant source of money local governments use to pay for schools, streets and roads, police, fire protection and other important citizen services.
