Texas Property Tax Loans – 3 Reasons to Act Now

With July 1st only a few weeks away, it's now more important than ever to take care of your delinquent property tax bill.   Delaying further will just end up costing you more to settle your tax bill. 

Why Secure a Property Tax Loan Now?

1. Your tax bill will increase substantially on July 1st.  Section 33.07 of the Texas Property Tax Code allows for the application of an additional penalty of up to 20% for delinquent real property taxes not paid prior to July 1st of the year in which they are due.

2. After July 1st, the attorney for the tax collector can file a suit against the delinquent property owner. Failure to respond to this suit may result in a judgment against the property owner for all past due property taxes along with court costs as a result of the tax suit and judgment - all adding increased expenses to the property owner.

3. Your mortgage company, without approval, can set up an escrow account and pay your taxes. Once they've paid your taxes they can demand immediate payment of the escrow shortage. Failure to pay the escrow shortage amount can result in acceleration of your note and foreclosure by the mortgage company.
