Texas law requires that each county property assessor publish the tax rates on the county website, according to the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, which publishes links to each county assessor website. The Comptroller's Office also publishes a Excel spreadsheet, which is sortable by county, containing the tax rate for all school districts by year.

Texas has no state property tax, according to the Texas Central Appraisal District. School districts set the annual tax rates that are levied against all property classified as nonexempt. There was a $25,000 homestead exemption and additional $10,000 exemption for people over age 65 in effect during 2015, according to the Comptroller.
