The Texas Property Tax Code requires all property to be appraised at one hundred percent (100%) market value. Also, in the Code, the Chief Appraiser is required to use the income method to appraise property qualified as low-income housing under Section 11.1825. Specifically, the appraiser must consider the restrictions on who may rent the property and the amount of rent to be charged. As of January 31, of each year, the District must give public notice of the cap rate to be used on all qualified low-income housing properties. The 2022 Capitalization rate for Delta County Appraisal District is between 8.5% and 9.5%.
Dear Delta County Property Owner,
Section 26.04(e-2), which was added to the Tax Code by SB 2 in 2019, requires appraisal districts to provide notice to property owners, by mail or email, that their estimated taxes may be found at a website hosted by the appraisal district and the tax data maintained by the tax assessor-collector and local taxing entities.
For Delta County, the website is https://delta.countytaxrates.com/. You will be receiving a postcard in the mail alerting you to go to visit Texas.gov/propertytaxes to view a proposed estimate of your 2022 property tax bill. You may reach the Delta County website through this online portal. These postcard mailings are required to be mailed by August 7, or as soon thereafter as practicable.
