TRUTH IN TAXATION

Visit Texas.gov/PropertyTaxes to find a link to your local property tax database on which you can easily access information regarding your property taxes, including information regarding the amount of taxes that each entity that taxes your property will impose if the entity adopts its proposed tax rate. Your local property tax database will be updated regularly during August and September as local elected officials propose and adopt the property tax rates that will determine how much you pay in property taxes.

APPRAISAL CALENDAR – EQUALIZATION PHASE

The deadline for filing a formal Notice of Protest has passed. Although we can no longer adjust property valuations absent a timely filed formal protest, anyone with questions about their property values, exemptions, etc. may continue to call or visit our office.

Please remember, we are unable to answer questions related to tax rates (what percentage of your value will be taxed this year) or tax amounts (exactly how much can you expect to owe this year). Tax rates are set by your local taxing jurisdictions (county, city, hospital district, water conservation district, school district) typically around August or September each year and they determine how much you will owe in property taxes. Contact information for the governing bodies of each taxing jurisdiction is available here.
