FAQs

What is the last day that I can pay my Harris County (TX) property tax bill without penalty and interest?

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.

Can I make monthly payments on my current property taxes in Harris County, TX?

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.

Why do I have to pre-pay this year’s taxes in order to title a manufactured home?

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.
