Truth In Taxation
Truth-in-taxation is a concept embodied in the Texas Constitution that requires local taxing units to make taxpayers aware of tax rate proposals and to afford taxpayers the opportunity to roll back or limit tax increases.
Forming a budget and adopting a property tax rate to fund the budget are major functions of a taxing unit's governing body. The requirements for each type of taxing unit can be found at: Truth-in-Taxation: Tax Rate Adoption.
This website was designed to provide the taxpayer with information concerning the property taxes that may be imposed on your property by local taxing units. In addition, you can find the dates and location of meetings in relation to the adoption of these rates, as well as other useful information in the tax rate adoption process.
Your property tax burden is determined by your locally elected officials.The Texas Constitution requires local taxing units to make taxpayers aware of tax rate proposals and to afford taxpayers the opportunity to roll back or limit tax increases.
The 86th Texas Legislature modified the manner in which the voter-approval tax rate is calculated to limit the rate of growth of property taxes in the state.
IMPORTANT: The Texas Legislature does not set the tax amount of your local taxes. Your property tax burden is decided by your locally elected officials (school trustees, city council, county commissioners, ETC.) and all questions concerning your taxes should be directed to those officials.
