EFFECT OF WEEKEND OR HOLIDAY 1.06
Texas Property Tax Deadlines Falling on Weekend or Holiday Extended to Next Business Day
Texas property tax deadlines are automatically extended to the next business day when the deadline for taxpayer action / filing falls on a weekend or holiday. For example, the normal property tax protest deadline is May 15. However, if May 15 is a Saturday or Sunday, the deadline is extended to the next business day, that is not a holiday.
Texas property owners often express concern regarding the actual due date when a deadline day falls upon a weekend or holiday. This sometimes occurs when the property tax protest deadline falls on a weekend or when the deadline for an exemption is on a holiday. Property owners are uncertain whether to be ready the preceding workday, the stated day or the following workday. Section 1.06 addresses this issue. “If the last day for the performance of an act is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal state or national holiday, the act is timely if performed on the next regular business day.”
Sec. 1.06. Effect of Weekend or Holiday.
If the last day for the performance of an act is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal state or national holiday, the act is timely if performed on the next regular business day.
