It can be hard to keep up.

Property taxes are ever changing in Texas. And yes, we admit that getting information on these rates can be confusing, even when cities and counties are required to publish ads in newspapers every August showing their old tax rates, their proposed tax rates for the new year, and other important figures. Yet, understanding where you are financially with the looming January 31, 2019 property tax deadline is necessary for avoiding foreclosure and sinking further into debt.

Here at Propel Tax, our team of property tax experts is available to help you keep your property, avoid foreclosure, and pay your tax obligation with an affordable monthly payment plan. The process is straightforward and safeguarded by state law. However, we want to make sure you’re aware of your county tax rates prior to coming to us. We want what is best for property holders.

So how do you check for tax rate proposals?

Visit your local government’s website where the information should be posted and check for upcoming public hearings where you can speak for or against the propositions.
