💸 The Fiscal Note: Largest relief in Texas history?

Happy Friday!

 

We hope everyone had a blessed week!

 

Lawmakers across the state have been touting that this session’s property tax relief package was the “largest in Texas history”. Vance Ginn debunks this claim in his article below.

 

Not only that, but overall property taxes still increased across the State, despite the relief!

 

Additionally, as elections begin this year, taxpayers need to know how their lawmakers voted on fiscal issues in the last session. Read how to use the Fiscal Responsibility Index to hold your lawmaker accountable below!👇

NEWS THAT IMPACTS YOUR WALLET

NEW PROPERTY TAX NUMBERS PROVE RELIEF WAS NOT THE LARGEST IN TEXAS HISTORY

 

Texans are upset that their property tax relief is less than the Texas Legislature promised last year.

 

While Texans for Fiscal Responsibility wrote about how we should expect this outcome, the reporting and claims about this relief were that it was the “largest property tax reduction plan in the history of Texas and the United States” or even the “largest property tax relief package in Texas history, and likely the world.”

 

Those claims are wrong because the amount of relief was not as much as what was provided in 2006 for fiscal years 2008 and 2009, but the Texas Comptroller’s new property tax rates and levies for 2023 show the resulting relief was not the largest either.
