A Complete Guide to Commercial Property Tax Loans


Are you tired of worrying about the burden of paying property taxes for your business? Look no further! This comprehensive guide covers all you need to know about commercial property tax loans.

Whether you’re a seasoned business owner or just starting out, discover the essential information you need to navigate the world of property tax financing - from understanding the basics to exploring your options and finding the best fit for your business.

What Happens if You Don’t Pay Your Commercial Property Taxes?

Commercial property taxes in Texas are not levied by the state but rather by local governmental entities. You may be shocked to hear that more than 4,796 local governments exist in Texas — school districts, cities, counties, and various special districts such as community colleges and public hospitals. And they all want funding from taxing your business property.

With so many recipients counting on that income, you can bet that the penalties for non-payment are going to be harsh.

  • Penalties and interest depend on how long the taxes have been delinquent. The beginning of February sees a 7% charge that increases by 2% per month until July 1st. That’s when the authority, in most counties, will slam you with an eye-watering 20% collection fee. This is on your base tax levy as well as all current and future penalties and interest. As there isn’t a cap on the penalty fees, interest or, collection fees; penalties, and interest on property taxes can quickly add up to as much as 48% in the first year.
  • Tax lien foreclosure proceedings may be initiated – your property may be seized and sold to pay the outstanding tax amounts.
  • There will eventually be a public record indicating that the property owner has been sued for unpaid property taxes.

Why So Many Business Owners Have Delinquent Property Taxes

If you have fallen behind on paying property taxes for your business, you are not alone.

  • Lack of funds due to cash flow issues, unexpected expenses, or slow sales periods.
  • Confusion about the tax system, including the assessment process, billing cycles, and penalties for non-payment.
  • Prioritizing other expenses, such as employee salaries.
  • General economic conditions
  • Good faith mistakes or willful employee malfeasance.
  • Disputes with tax assessors about the assessed value of the property.

While all these reasons are valid, they don’t stop the taxman’s focus on collecting the owed taxes to fulfill his mandate.

Why You Should Consider a Commercial Property Tax Loan


Knowing the consequences of delinquent property taxes, you’ll be wise to take steps to address the issue as soon as possible.

With a business property tax loan, the lenders pay your tax obligation to the appropriate tax office. They then reflect your account as paid, and all the collection actions cease. The governmental tax lien is transferred to the property tax lender, for example, American Finance & Investment Co., Inc., and you would then make payments according to the terms negotiated in your loan agreement.

Stop Accumulating Penalties and Interest

The number one reason to take out a loan for commercial property taxes is to plug the leak in the financial dam.

Stop the exponential increase of penalties and interest to keep the amount due manageable and maintain the financial stability of your business.
