Texas Property Taxes


Property Taxes

Texas does not have a State income tax but we do have property taxes. The effective tax rate varies by location. It is important to note that there are several layers to the total tax rate.

  • LAYER ONE: County Taxes
  • LAYER TWO: City Taxes
  • LAYER THREE: School Taxes

Some areas have an added layer imposing MUD or PID taxes. This is an important element in the financing of your home and must be discussed with your lender.
