Tax Rates and Levies

Tax Code Section 26.16 requires the county assessor-collector for each county that maintains an Internet website to post on the county website certain tax rate information for each taxing unit in the county. Comptroller Rule 9.1002 Posting of Tax Rates on County's Internet Website prescribes the manner in which the information is required to be presented. Please contact your local county tax assessor-collector for more information.

Effective Jan. 1, 2016, Tax Code Section 5.091 requires the Comptroller’s office to prepare an annual list of total tax rates reported to the Comptroller’s office by taxing units other than school districts. The tax rates included are for the preceding year and must be listed in descending order. PTAD publishes this list not later than Dec. 31 of each year, as required.

The market values, taxable values and tax rates are self-reported by local entities. The Comptroller’s office does not guarantee the accuracy of the self-reported information. All levies shown are calculated by the Comptroller’s office from the self-reported information and do not reflect actual tax collections.

An ** by the taxing unit name in the special district spreadsheet indicates that the taxing unit is a community college district that may collect a tax in some school districts under Education Code Chapter 130. This allows for a different tax rate for branch campuses in those school districts.
