Will your employer be taxed out of town? Without appraisal district and property tax reform, major Texas cities face the challenge of retaining businesses within their borders. Many are unaware that property taxes are paid by the businesses who lease space in Texas. Uncontrolled valuation increases have placed an incredible financial burden on our Texas businesses – from the major corporations to the mom and pop establishments.
Taxed out of Town is committed to finding solutions on Texas property taxation that do not place unnecessary burden on commercial property owners, their tenants, small businesses and residents. Taxed out of Town is an initiative established by members of the Building Owners and Managers Association across Texas.
The Texas Legislature convenes in 2017 and will consider tax assessment and appraisal district reform. Please check back with TaxedOutOfTown.com regularly as we will share specific information on vitally important legislation.
We encourage you to contact your state elected officials in Texas and continue the conversation throughout the upcoming legislative session. Contact your Appraisal Officer and tell them you don’t want Texas businesses taxed out of town!
