Residents & Business Owners in Flood Damaged Counties Can Pay Property Taxes in Installments


Thursday, December 18, 2017

HOUSTON TX – Lt. Governor Dan Patrick issued a video press release today informing residents and business owners in counties that were damaged by Hurricane Harvey that they are eligible to pay their property taxes in four installments rather than a lump sum.

Patrick has urged counties and other local taxing entities in disaster areas to reappraise property so that property taxpayers would not be required to pay the same taxes on their property as they would have paid if it had not been damaged. Some local leaders, including those in Harris County, have refused. While the installment payment alternative will not lower property tax payments, it can provide some cash flow relief for those dealing with the challenges of recovery and rebuilding.

ICYMI: I released 57 interim charges that reflect issues that Texans have asked us to study. Our 31 senators submitted hundreds of ideas, with many senators sharing similar proposals. My staff and I worked diligently for weeks to review each request, and this is the first set of interim charges I am releasing in preparation for the 89th Legislature. We may release a second shorter list of additional charges before next session.

You can read more about them here:; and here is a list of all 57 charges for the Senate:
