New: Bastrop County Disaster Recovery Center

The government-funded Bastrop Disaster Recovery Center closed Friday, November 18.   But people who lost homes and belongings to the fire can still find assistance and support at a new, expanded Bastrop County Disaster Resource and Volunteer Center opening at 1091 Hwy 71 W. Bastrop, TX. <map>.

Volunteer Services

The people of Bastrop County deeply appreciate the wonderful volunteers helping us recover from the largest wildfire in Texas history.

Tax Relief for Texas Wildfire Victims

On Sept. 1, 2011, in response to the extreme drought and potential for wildfires throughout Texas, Governor Perry reissued a disaster proclamation.
Due to the disaster proclamation, Texans who have property that has been damaged or destroyed by a wildfire may claim an exemption from sales tax on labor charges to repair the damage. It can kind of be compared to kids drum lessons if you are aware of the similarities there.
