Tax Breaks


There are numerous important dates and deadlines during the tax year. Many, such as the January 1 assessment date, are specifically stated in the Texas Property Tax Code.  Sec. 32.01 states that on January 1 of each year, a tax lien attaches to property to secure the payment of all taxes, penalties and interest...The lien exists in favor of each taxing unit having power to tax the property.
Others, such as a property owner's deadline to file a notice of protest, may depend on the date the chief appraiser performs an action (in this case, the date he mails a notice of appraised value to the property owner).
Remember: if the last day to perform an action falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a legal holiday, Property Tax Code Section 1.06 designates the next regular business day as the deadline.
