Welcome to Uvalde County Appraisal District

Understanding The Property Tax System

Property Taxes are local taxes that provide the largest source of money local governments use to pay for schools, streets, roads, police fire protection and many others services.  Texas law establishes the process followed by local officials in determining the value for property, ensuring that values are equal and uniform, setting tax rates and collecting taxes.

Texas has no state property tax.  The Legislature has authorized local governments to collect the tax. The state does not set tax rates, collect taxes or settle disputes between you and your local governments.
