Changes to Texas property taxes in 2018: What does it mean for you?

It’s tax season, and if you are still trying to figure out how the new federal tax plan affects you, you aren’t alone. Earlier this year, Congress made a speedy change to the federal tax plan to change the local tax (and therefore your property tax) deduction guidelines.  

Prior to this year, Texans could take an unlimited deduction toward the current year’s taxes. But that deduction expired, seemingly overnight, earlier in January, sending concerned Texans scrambling.

What Property Tax Payers Should Expect

Starting for the year 2018, Texas property taxes will be subject to the new federal rules that cap state and local tax deductions at $10,000. The rollback of these deductions will undoubtedly affect Texas, which has no state income tax and relies heavily on comparatively higher property taxes.

It’s estimated 1 in 4 Texas homeowners will be off the hook for paying above the new lower deduction amount, despite enjoying the unlimited deduction amount for years.
