AFAIK, any difference in taxes from area to area are pretty immaterial. Property taxes are high here...it is just degrees of high, LOL.

Taxes might seem lower if you live in the county but then you get hit with the MUD taxes and from what I hear about some of the water bills, it would make very little difference.

I think you might be able to do a Houston Chronicle search on this question - I seem to remember this being posted by them a while back.

If you can't afford the property tax, then don't bother to live in and around Houston. It's a pretty limited question to ask because there are much more factors to consider with relocation.

Isn't the property tax in Stafford zero?? Maybe the OP wants to reduce expenses because money is tight. I think it's a legitimate question.

Bike4Life - why are you always so negative??

It's probably not a problem, as 3% tax in TX compared to 1% in CA is still going to be cheaper here. Again, probably not the issue.

But even if you're just renting, those property tax costs are passed along to you.

There is no such thing as zero taxes because then it wouldn't exist. Besides, questioning about taxes is utterly meaningless. If you don't pay taxes though this, then you will pay taxes through that. Lots of people complain about taxes they see what they are paying but almost never say anything about hidden taxes or even be thankful that they don't have to pay other taxes. It's vanity.
