Note: Texas has no state income tax. Only the Federal Income Tax applies.

Texas is one of seven states that do not collect a personal income tax. However, revenue lost to Texas by not having a personal income tax may be made up through other state-level taxes, such as the Texas sales tax and the Texas property tax.

Texas has never had a personal income tax, and restrictions in Article 8 of the the Texas State Constitution place severe limitations on any potential state income tax collected in the future. An income tax can only be enacted by public vote, and any income tax proceeds must be used to reduce the Texas property tax.

As of 2007, Texas generates supplemental tax revenue through a corporate gross receipts tax.
