State property tax transparency

Our community's property taxes help fund our schools and provide an exceptional education to our children.

Unfortunately, the state has been decreasing the amount it contributes towards public education. When property values increase, homeowners and business owners pay more money in taxes. Even though homeowners may pay higher taxes, the state pays less and uses the savings it gets to fund other expenditures and priorities.

Taxes on the average residence

First, the taxable value of the home is determined:

  • Appraised value: $233, 056
  • State Exemption: $25,000
  • Taxable value: 233,056 - 25,000 = $208,056

The taxable value is then used to calculate the school taxes on this home:

  • Tax Rate per $100/valuation: $1.2563
  • $100/valuation of $175,000 taxable value on "average" home: $2080.56
  • Total School Taxes for 2021: 1.2563 x 2080.56 = $2613.80

Garland ISD adopted the same rate for 2021 as in 2020. 

Therefore, the school taxes on the comparable home a year ago (2020) would have the same levy of $2,613.80.
