Heath's prevailing tax rate also is in the bottom quartile of property tax rates in the Dallas area. Some of the ways Heath is different from and similar to other DFW area cities and towns are shown on these best Dallas suburbs and about Dallas suburbs pages.

Heath is located in southwest Rockwall County, approximately 25 miles east of downtown Dallas and 56 miles east of downtown Fort Worth. As the DFW metroplex continues to grow and becomes more densely populated, Heath's proximity to downtown Dallas and the north Dallas business center is likely to make Heath residential real estate even more desirable than it is now for people who need to commute frequently to and from these areas.
