Payment Options Available for Delinquent Property Taxpayers
Avoid Additional Penalty

Because economic times are tough right now, the City of Houston would like to remind Houstonians who may be struggling to pay their 2009 real property taxes that were due January 31, 2010, that there are options. Prior to July 1, 2010, you can arrange to pay your taxes in monthly installments. In doing so, you can avoid the additional 20% collection penalty that will become due on July 1, 2010, if taxes remain unpaid. Please note that receipt of this email does NOT mean you owe property taxes.

If there are no delinquent taxes from a prior tax year, an installment agreement can be set up by contacting the Harris County Tax Office Call Center at 713-368-2000, or by going to your local Harris County branch office listed at While the property owner will not avoid paying penalty and interest under the installment agreement, you will avoid the additional collection penalty of 20% on the outstanding balance by signing the installment agreement before July 1, 2010 and by making payments on time.
