From State Comptroller Susan Combs:
I strongly believe in giving Texans easier access to the information they need to make informed decisions and hold their government accountable. For example, all taxpayers should know who is taxing them, how they are being taxed and where those taxes are being spent.
Thousands of cities, counties, special purpose districts and transit authorities in Texas levy property or sales tax. Taxpayers may not be aware of the various taxes they are paying, and finding this information can be challenging. I want to change that.
For the first time, taxpayers will be able to see all of the local taxing entities in their area and the revenues collected by them in one place via an online tool. With just the simple click of a mouse, every citizen in Texas can now see who is collecting property taxes and sales taxes in their county, along with the value of those local taxes.
We have also put together a report, the first in a series called "Texas, It’s Your Money,” describing these local taxing entities and how they operate. More transparency is critical to individual Texans as they consider tax burdens. Subsequent reports will look at local debt, as well as the health of various public pension funds in Texas.
To view the full report and the new online tool, click here: www.TexasItsYourMoney.org. I hope you will share this valuable resource and accompanying report with others across the state, who might find it of interest.
More to come!
