Sample Property Tax Report for a Lamar County, TX property


The Texas Tax Code represents the main legal document regarding taxation in the State of Texas. Property taxes are 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 homesite value $8,000
Improvement homesite value + $138,170
Improvement non-homesite value + $39,400
Agriculture market value + $152,070
Market value = $337,640
Appraised Value

Establishing appraised value of a property represents the first step towards determining it's taxable value. The appraised value is calculated by using the Agricultural/Timber Use Value instead of the agriculture or timber market value.

Market value $337,640
Agricultural market value - $152,070
Agricultural use value + $4,070
Appraised value = $189,640
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 apply only in the case of residential homestead and cannot exceed the lesser of the market value or the preceding year's appraised value plus 10% plus the value of any improvements added since the last re-appraisal.

Assessed value = $189,640
Property Tax

Property tax is calculated by multiplying the taxable value with the corresponding tax rates.

A variety of property tax exemptions are available in Texas State, and these may be deducted from the assessed value to give the property's taxable value.

Current tax represents the amount the present owner pays, including exemptions.
Base tax is an estimate of what an owner not benefiting from tax exemptions or deductions would pay.
Actual taxes might differ from the figures displayed here due to various abatement and financial assistance programs.

Tax description Assessed value Exemption Taxable value Tax rate Tax amount
Lamar County $189,640 - $0 = $189,640 * 0.4251% = $806.16
North Lamar Isd $189,640 - $15,000 = $174,640 * 1.1111% = $1,940.43
