Texas Property Tax Rates

Property taxes are collected on a county level, and each county in Texas has its own method of assessing and collecting taxes. As a result, it's not possible to provide a single property tax rate that applies uniformly to all properties in Texas.

Instead, Tax-Rates.org provides property tax statistics based on the taxes owed on millions of properties across Texas. These statistics allow you to easily compare relative property taxes across different areas, and see how your property taxes compare to taxes on similar houses in Texas.

The statistics provided here are state-wide. For more localized statistics, you can find your county in the Texas property tax map or county list found on this page.
