Important Articles for Anyone Who Searches County Records
Texas Property Tax Code (Sec. 11.1825 (r)) requires the
appraisal district to give notice of the capitalization rate
to be used in that year to appraise property receiving an
exemption under this section. The Property Tax Code also
requires property to be appraised at 100% market value. In
keeping with that requirement, the capitalization rate that
will be used to derive an estimate of market value for
exempt low and moderate-income housing for tax year 2014
will be between 8.5% and 10.5%
