Property tax deadlines in Texas are heavy on property owners. And with this year’s January 31 deadline coming and gone, penalties, interest, & fees for missing that deadline are now increasing greatly for Property Taxes.

If a property owner does not pay their property taxes, the Tax Collector has ways to enforce the payment. In addition to hefty penalties and fees, the county can foreclose on delinquent property tax accounts.

There are some exemptions, but for most property owners in Texas, either you’ve paid your 2020 property taxes or haven’t. And if you haven’t, you face the following:

  • Interest 
  • Penalties
  • Fees
  • Court Costs
  • The possibility of being sued
  • Foreclosure

Interest and penalties on delinquent taxes can sum up to 42% by the end of the year, depending on the county.

So, what are the important deadlines?
