Dallas Area Property Tax Rates

Dallas property taxesIf you are relocating to the Dallas area from another state, your property taxes may be higher here than where you lived previously. The offset is that in Texas you will not be paying any state or local personal income taxes. Depending on your level of income and the value of your home, your total annual state and local tax bill may be less than it is where you are currently living. Additionally, Texas is one of only 12 states in the nation without a residential real estate transfer tax. In fact, recent U.S. Census data shows Texas ranks 37th among the 50 states in percentage of per capita personal income spent on state and local taxes.

Property taxes are calculated by multiplying the assessed value of the property minus applicable homestead, age 65+ and disability exemption amounts by the mil rates levied by the taxing authorities that have jurisdiction where the property is located. Texas state law defines the assessed value of real property as the market value of a property on January 1, the first day of the tax year. Official property tax exemption information can be found at State of Texas Comptroller property tax exemptions.

Property taxes typically are paid in a single annual payment that is due on or before December 31, the final day of the tax year.

Becoming familiar with the analyses on this website can help identify the best places in the Dallas area for you to live. Acquiring the home that best meets your wants and needs, however, usually is done most efficiently with the assistance of a capable real estate agent.
