Benefits of a Commercial Property Tax Loan for Your Business

commercial%20property%20tax%20loan%20benefits.jpeg As a Texas business owner, you are known for your hard work and dedication to your firm. You may not instinctively consider the benefits of a commercial property tax loan - as you tend to be a self-starter who values independence and self-reliance. If this sounds familiar, you are in the right place! Read on to discover how you can leverage a loan to pay commercial property tax to benefit your business.

The Reality of Owning a Business in Texas

There are many reasons why entrepreneurs are relocating to Texas:

  • Large and growing population, i.e., customer base
  • Strong economy with a diverse range of industries
  • Access to a large and skilled workforce
  • Strategic location with easy access to domestic and international markets
  • Pro-business regulations and low taxes*

*To counter being one of the states in the US that does not have a corporate income tax, Texas relies on other taxes to generate revenue – including a tax on commercial property.

The Benefits of a Commercial Property Tax Loan

Let’s examine the benefits of a commercial property tax loan:

Property Tax Loans Help with Uneven Cash Flow

You know that cash flow is an important aspect of your business’s financial health and is essential for its survival and growth.

In Texas, property taxes are due annually – leaving you with a hefty bill to pay with any cash you have accumulated. Taking a loan to pay the amount due helps your cash flow in two ways:

  1. It provides you with the funds you need even if you do not have enough cash on hand. This can be especially helpful if you operate in an industry that experiences seasonal fluctuations in revenue or if you have had unexpected expenses that impacted your cash flow.
  2. It offers some flexibility in managing your cash flow. Instead of paying the entire property tax bill at once, the payments are spread out over a set period of time.

Avoid Property Tax Penalties and Interest

Texas property owners who fail to pay their commercial property taxes on time will be subject to crippling penalties and interest charges. These can accumulate quickly, making it even more difficult to catch up on unpaid taxes.

Using a loan to pay your property taxes before the deadline ensures that your business avoids incurring any late-payment penalties and interest. Moreover, some commercial property tax lenders, like our team at American Finance & Investment Co., Inc., pay property taxes directly to the county on your behalf to give you complete peace of mind that the taxes are paid on time.

Avoid the Possibility of Foreclosure

If Texas property taxes are unpaid for a long period of time, the local government may initiate foreclosure proceedings on the property. Thus, staying on top of your property tax payments is crucial to mitigate the risk of foreclosure.

When your firm takes out a commercial property tax loan, the loan funds pay the outstanding property taxes, which will avoid the foreclosure.


How to Qualify for a Commercial Property Tax Loan

By now, you are probably wondering how to qualify for a commercial property tax loan.

Property Tax loans are asset based loans, which means that the lender focuses less on your credit profile and more on the quality of the asset. That being the case, impaired credit or struggling financials are nothing to worry about. You simply need a valid title for the commercial property for which you are seeking a loan.
