Property owners statewide have until Jan. 31 to pay property taxes.  Penalties for not paying on time will begin at 7 percent on Feb. 1 and increase 2 percent per month until reaching 18 percent on July 1.  However, Harris and Galveston County residents whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Ike may qualify for a property tax payment plan authorized under the Texas Property Tax Code. For more information, see “Property Tax Payment Plan to Help Ike Victims.”
