Texas Property Tax
« on: February 06, 2005, 05:30:49 pm »
I just read somewhere that property taxes in Texas are aound 3%.  Can someone please confirm this.  I am looking into investment opportunities in Dallas and property taxes are a big component in my analysis.


Thanks

Garfield127,

You are pretty close.  A house that I have in a small town a bit north of Dallas  has a 2.8% tax rate.  Total taxes for the property were
$2567.83 on a tax valuation of $90,163.

In Texas we don't have income tax, so the state makes its money off property taxes.  Where just outside of Houston, I look at paying County tax of 0.64% plus Haris county college tax of .0114%, plus Muninciple Utility District (MUD) where you get your water from of 0.46%, plus Cy-Fair school district of 1.79% for a total of 3.0%.  Houston school is a different rate, so is Klien schools, and Fort Bend schools, etc.
