Section 6.30 of the Texas Property Tax Code allows taxing units to contract with an attorney to enforce the collection of delinquent taxes.

All taxing units collected by the Medina County Tax Office are contracted with McCreary Veselka Bragg & Allen for delinquent tax collection with the following exceptions:

Medina Valley ISD and Devine ISD -- Law Office of Henry G Steen, Jr.
City of Devine --
Law Office of Thomas P. Cate.

If you owe delinquent taxes, you may receive multiple delinquent tax notices from each corresponding attorney -- and for only  the entity  or entities for which they represent.  
(For example if you own property within the city limits of Devine and owe delinquent taxes, you may receive delinquent notices from Cate for the City, from Steen for Devine ISD and from MVBA for all other entities.)
Payment  of delinquent taxes for all taxing units (listed in the section above) can be paid at any of the Medina County Tax Office locations.

On July 1st of the year in which the tax becomes delinquent, unpaid tax balances incur an additional penalty (attorney fee) in the amount of 20% of the delinquent tax, penalties and interest.
Tax Code Sec. 6.30(c) & Sec. 33.07(a)
