If you are looking for how to save money on your property taxes, a property tax loan may be the solution you hadn’t considered.A property tax loan is when property tax lenders pay your taxes and in return work out an affordable repayment plan with you. This allows for residential and commercial property owners in Texas to bypass penalties, interest, and legal fees on their delinquent property taxes. The Tax Collector transfers the tax lien to the property tax lender, providing the lender with security and ensuring they are paid under the payment plan.
While it may seem counterproductive to apply for a loan to pay your property taxes, that is not the case. Property tax loans can help you save money if you know you will be unable to meet the payment deadline. Instead of paying one large sum, you can work out an affordable repayment plan with a reputable property tax lender, lessening your financial strain.
If you are unable to pay your property taxes, your local taxing authority will start charging interest and penalties on your tax account, thereby making your property taxes more unaffordable to pay. This interest typically accrues monthly, and monetary penalties are also incurred. A property tax loan can assist in avoiding impending penalties, interest, and collection fees that the county imposes on unpaid property taxes—in return, saving you money.
As of February 1, your tax bill will accrue a 6% penalty. The penalty will increase by 1% monthly until it reaches a maximum of 12% on 1 July. Delinquent property taxes may also accrue a further penalty of up to 20% added as of July 1st. This delinquency penalty is 20% of all property taxes, penalties, and interest accrued to that date and is used to cover legal fees when property taxes are handed over to attorneys for collection. Court and other fees may also be later added if the county files suit against you.
Texas has no income tax. Most of the funding for state and local government comes from property tax. When a taxpayer finds he is unable to pay his tax bill, tax loans are available to save from paying additional penalties, and interest. Texas property taxes are subject to steep penalties and tax loans help property owners avoid them. Interest and penalties on property taxes can be around 43% in the first year alone.
Paying back a tax loan is usually an easy process as most property owners are given between three to ten years to do so. Even with interest, tax loans help to save property owners money. It is not unusual for a property owner to save money while having manageable payments by taking out a tax loan versus paying penalties and interest to their tax collector.
