Using this service, you can view and pay for your Property Tax bill for Harris County online.
The Tax Office accepts full and partial payment of property taxes online. Property taxpayers may use credit cards, debit cards or e-Checks to pay their taxes.
Property Tax payments are due by January 31st in order to be considered timely.
The only exception to this rule is when the last day of the month is a Harris County holiday or falls on a weekend. In that case, then the next business day (or first business day in February) is honored as timely for receipt of payment.
Yes! For real property you can make monthly payments through June but you will have to pay penalty and interest starting February 1. If you still have a balance at the end of June, you can enter into an installment agreement with the Harris County Tax office at that time to pay any remaining balance plus penalty and interest over the next six months. While you won't avoid paying penalty and interest under this plan, you will avoid the additional collection fee of 15% to 20% on the outstanding balance by signing the installment agreement in June and making the payments on time.
Installment agreements are only available through April 1 for business personal property accounts that have been noticed in February. After April 1 the additional 15% to 20% collection fee will apply to these accounts.

Those who have an over 65 or disabled exemption or the surviving spouse of a disabled veteran may request to pay their property taxes in 4 equal payments without penalty and interest.
Pursuant to Texas Occupations Code chapter 1201.206 (g) and Texas Property Tax Code section 32.03 (a-2), a person may not transfer ownership of a manufactured home until all recorded tax liens have been released and all taxes which accrued within the 18 months preceding the date of the sale have been paid.
Since tax liability is incurred on the 1st day of the year, you must pay the current year’s property taxes, if the sale occurs on or after the 1st day of the year.
