Whether you are considering relocating to the DFW Metroplex or from within the boundaries of North Texas, tax rates may differ from what you are accustomed to paying. While Texas has no state or local income tax and no property tax on vehicles, its residents pay one of the nation's highest rates when it comes to taxes on real estate.

In Texas, property taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessed value of real property by the total combined levy across each taxing authority having jurisdiction over the parcel. Rates are reviewed annually, and assessed each calendar year starting January 1. Additional taxes could be present for properties situated within boundaries of special district rates (MUD / PUD, etc...) During the purchase process, you should receive a tax certification from the title company based off the prior year's amounts to estimate what will be collected at closing. If you are purchasing within a special district, the Seller should disclose this information as well. Your lender can assist you with information regarding escrow options for your mortgage payment.
