Don’t know how accurate this is, but according to Property Tax 101, these are the median property taxes for well-populated and/or fast-growing counties in TX:

Taylor Co: $1366 (Abilene)
Tom Green: $1201 (San Angelo)
Ector Co: $1061 (Odessa)

*Wichita (Falls) County is $1480, but it’s debatable as to whether that’s West TX or the Texoma Region like Gainesville/Sherman/Denison.

Sorry for any errors, but you get the idea.

It's been a few years since I looked at this very closely but what I learned was that it was the large unpopulated counties in the western part of the State with no industries or tax bases who have the largest published tax rates. There are some taxes assessed by each county that are not published. And I learned that the differences in the rates between the eastern populated counties and the western counties was no small difference either and that few Texans are aware of the differences. When it comes to property taxes, Texas has 254 different sovereignties.

Additionally, I think since taxable property values in west Texas tend to be a lot lower than comparable properties in eastern Texas, and the fact that most of our tax payers out here have agricultural exemptions, this makes a difference in how tax rates are set. As well, at least a couple of northwest Texas counties still collect a stiff property tax on newer vehicles every year.

In short, if anyone wants to move to rural west Texas, you'd better plan on having livestock or crops or pay a heavy penalty to the tax collector for a simple rural home.
