2020 Property Tax Rate
The North Richland Hills City Council adopts a property tax rate annually as part to of the city's budget process. The adopted tax rate for 2020 is $0.575700. A public hearing on the tax rate was held on August 13 and the City Council voted to adopt the tax rate on August 17.
The average NRH home with a taxable value of $206,645 will pay $1,189.66 in property taxes to the city this year. Your property taxes may decrease, increase or remain the same depending on changes in the appraised value of your property. Senior and disabled property owners that have a tax ceiling (even if their property values have increased) will pay the same amount of city property tax as the previous year, unless their appraised property value decreased. In accordance with Senate Bill 2, the Texas Property Tax Reform and Transparency Act of 2019, property tax information for all taxing districts must be posted on a county website. You can view the information and taxes for your property at www.tarranttaxinfo.com.
Annual Property Tax Bill
Property tax bills are mailed to property owners in October of each year. The last day to pay taxes without penalty and interest is January 31. A resident's overall property tax bill includes taxes assessed by the city, school district, county, county hospital district and county college district. More than half of your property tax bill is paid to the school district, with about 22% going to the city. Each jurisdiction sets their tax rate annually, in conjunction with the adoption of their annual budget. For the City of North Richland Hills, this takes place each August.
