Texas Property Tax Code 2021
The Texas Property Tax Code available on this website are current through the Regular Session of the 84th Legislature, June 2017. The Texas Constitution is current through the amendments approved by voters in November 2015.
The Texas Property Tax Code (TPTC) contains statutes regulating the assessment, taxation, exemptions, appeal options, hearing procedures for Texas property tax appeals, judicial appeals for Texas property taxes, timely payment of Texas property taxes, and penalties for late payment of property taxes. The TPTC covers all counties in Texas and does not vary from county to county. Each county has an appraisal district which estimates the market value (assessed value) for real and personal property in the county.
Articles on appealing your property taxes and obtaining exemptions are available in this site. This and the preceding paragraph were prepared by O’Connor & Associates and the Texas Property Tax Code is determined by the legislature and compiled by the Texas Comptroller.
