Property Taxes 101
Learn how your property tax is calculated in Texas.
Texas homeowners pay billions of dollars in property taxes each year to support local government services like police, fire and schools.
The amount of property tax you pay is determined by two numbers: your property’s market value and your local tax rate.
Rates are set by local taxing authorities and you can’t change them.
However, your property value is set by the county appraiser and IS something you can change every year.
Here’s how you can change your property value and lower your taxes:
Your county will send you a notice with the proposed value of your property. This is the value you will be taxed on if you don’t protest.
Once you receive the notice, you have 30 days to file a protest. If you miss the deadline there is nothing you can do to lower your taxes that year.
