How do Texas Property Taxes Compare to Other States

Texas property taxes are high — some of the highest in the country. Usually, the average effective real estate property tax rate falls between 1.62% and 1.83%, much higher than the national average of 1.08% for property taxes. Texas does things bigger, after all! In terms of a dollar amount, the average amount paid per year is nearly $3,500 for a home valued at $185,000. However, your exact bill is based on the tax rate set by your county and the value of your home or commercial property.
