Harris County Commissioners Court votes to raise the property tax rate

HOUSTON, TX — Harris County Commissioners Court voted to raise the property tax rate to the maximum amount allowed by law without going to the public for approval for the increase.

Jack Cagle and Steve Radack voted against this tax increase; County Judge Lina Hidalgo and Commissioners Rodney Ellis and Adrian Garcia voted in favor. You can submit your comments via public hearing or by contacting your commissioner’s or county judge’s office via telephone, email or letter.
