Sample Property Tax Report for a Ector County, TX property

The Texas Tax Code represents the main legal document regarding taxation in the State of Texas. Property tax is determined at local levels, being used for paying for services such as schools, hospitals, or colleges.

Market Value

Market value has been defined by The Supreme Court as the sale price of real estate as agreed upon between a willing buyer and willing seller, with neither being under duress to buy or sell.

Land value $9,930
Improvement value + $82,912
Market value = $92,842
Appraised Value

Establishing the appraised value of a property is the first step towards determining its taxable value. The appraised value is calculated by using the Agricultural Use Value instead of the agriculture market value.

This property does not have a use value, so the appraised value the same as market value.

Assessed Value

The second step is determining the property's assessed value, which is obtained by subtracting the homestead cap loss value from the appraised value. This applies only in the case of a residential homestead, when the assessment increases, and this is limited to a maximum of 10%.

Market value $92,842
Homestead cap loss - $4,977
Assessed value = $87,865
