Relocating to your business to Texas may increase your property taxes. Our property taxes are likely higher than where you were before. The difference is that Texans don’t pay personal income taxes. Your income and your building’s value will determine whether or not you will save money by moving to Texas.
In Texas, understanding the property tax process can be confusing. Property taxes are local but the process is governed by Texas law. Property taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessed value of the property minus applicable exemptions with the rates used by the taxing authorities. Texas state law defines the assessed value of real property as the market value of a property on January 1. They are typically paid in a single annual payment that is due on or before December 31.
