A Loan To Pay Property Taxes Can Provide Fast Funding & Help You Avoid Penalties


Following the Covid-19 pandemic, the local economy was hit exceptionally hard. Consequently, unemployment rates reached record highs in Texas. According to the US Bureau of Labor and Statistics, unemployment in Texas at the end of 2020 was around 7% compared with 3.5% before COVID-19.

Many Texans have lost their jobs and now find themselves struggling to make ends meet. For Texas homeowners, they must now deal with the fast approaching deadline for residential property tax payments. Some municipalities may offer discounts if you pay your property taxes by a certain date, but this deadline can be difficult to meet. There are deferral processes and exemptions for qualifying people. However, these programs have a lot of qualification criteria and are usually aimed at senior citizens, veterans, and disabled citizens, so not everyone can use them. This means that property owners who cannot pay their property taxes often go into delinquency. The consequences for a property owner who cannot pay the property taxes owed on their principal residence can be extreme, both financially and emotionally, but a property tax loan can provide relief.

Not Paying Property Taxes Results in Expensive Penalties or Foreclosure

Falling behind on your property taxes in Texas can lead to significant amounts of penalty fees , interest, attorney collection fees, and payments which will only increase with time. Starting on February 1st, property owners who have delinquent taxes are charged 7% in interest and penalties in most counties. This interest rate increases by 2% every month until July 1st, when the taxing authority in most Texas counties will hit you with a 20% collection fee and an additional 3% in penalties and interest. Thereafter, interest accrues at 1% per month

There is no cap on the Interest and property owners will continue to see their penalties and interest rise each month. In the first year alone, penalties, fees, and interest can approach 44%. In the worst case, this could ultimately lead to losing your property to foreclosure, destroying your hard-earned equity.

What are the Benefits of a Property Tax Loan?

In Texas, property owners are able to choose the company that provides them with a property tax loan. Getting a loan offers significant benefits to property owners struggling to pay their annual property tax bill:

  • The accumulation of penalties, fees, and interest will stop
  • Foreclosure or lawsuits from the county are avoided
  • The ability to obtain more flexible and less costly repayment terms
  • Relief and peace of mind for property owners

If a property owner is delinquent on their property taxes, a property tax loan from a property tax lender can provide immediate financial and emotional relief. You (the borrower) and the lender will negotiate agreed upon terms, and the lender will pay your obligation to the county or applicable tax office. The governmental tax lien on your property is transferred to the property tax lender, and you will begin to pay the lender pursuant to your agreement.
