Tax Rate Survey

2019 Tax Rate Survey

The City of Tyler property tax rate continues to be the lowest among all Texas mid-to large-sized cities, according to an annual survey by the Texas Municipal League.

The current survey included tax information from 591 Texas cities. The highest tax rate in the survey was $1.50 per $100 valuation charged by Tehucana, a city of 283 residents. In comparison, Tyler's property tax rate is only 24.4452 cents, making it one of the lowest.

Tyler's tax rate was once 53 cents and has dropped a few cents each year since 1995. The downward trend can be attributed to the City's Blueprint plan for operating municipal government more efficiently.

The City's team of hard working employees are dedicated to the Blueprint and continuously look for new, better, more cost effective ways to operate.
