Property Taxes

"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes" ~Benjamin Franklin

Truer words have never been spoken. Texas does not have a State income tax but we do have property taxes. The effective tax rate varies by location. It is important to note that there are several layers to the total tax rate.

LAYER ONE: County Taxes

LAYER TWO: City Taxes

LAYER THREE: School Taxes

Some areas have an added layer imposing MUD or PID taxes. This is an imporatant element in the financing of your home and must be discussed with your lender.
