Property taxes are skyrocketing across Texas. To ease the burden of trying to figure out the confusing property tax process — legislators should support Senate Bill 2 and House Bill 2, which give citizens more say.
Under the existing system, citizens can veto a property tax hike of 8 percent or more only if they gather thousands and thousands of petition signatures.
SB 2 and HB 2 would lower the 8 percent threshold to 2.5 percent and eliminate the petition gathering requirement. Any tax increase over 2.5 percent would automatically require voter approval.
These bills would preserve local governments’ ability to fund essential services and allow taxpayers to choose how much additional government they want and are willing to pay for.
Tell legislators to support SB 2 and HB 2, today!
