HCDE saves taxpayers money with lowered tax rate  

 

Harris County Department of Education is committed to being good stewards of taxpayer dollars. For the sixth year in a row, HCDE's Board of Trustees voted to save county taxpayers money by lowering the tax rate below the effective tax rate.

HCDE’s adopted tax rate is $0.004993 per $100 assessed property value for tax year 2020-2021. For the average home in Harris County, valued at $167,000, this equates to $8.34 a year.
