Title 1. Property Tax Code


Dear Fellow Texan:

As a user of our state Property Tax Code, you are already aware of the complexity of the law in this area and the importance of ready access to the statutes. To help you access the law, we are not only providing the following information in print, but also online at http://www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/proptax/proptax.html, where you can utilize a search function to better navigate through the Code.

This annotated and cross-referenced version of the "Texas Property Tax Code" includes an impartial selection of court cases that we believe may be of the most interest and use to you. Our selection of these cases, though, should not be interpreted as a comment on their authority or application to your particular reference needs.

We provide one copy of this book free to every appraisal district and every taxing unit. To obtain extra copies, please e-mail us at ptd.cpa@cpa.state.tx.us, call us at 1-800-252-9121, or in Austin at 512/305-9999, or write us at Comptroller of Public Accounts, Property Tax Division, Post Office Box 13528, Austin, Texas 78711-3528.

Thanks for all that you do for Texas.
