Property Tax Proposal Eases Tax Burden on Texans

AUSTIN, TX – Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey released the following statement on the property tax swap proposal:

“This important proposal by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Speaker of the House makes significant progress on a crucial Legislative Priority for the Republican Party and eases the burden on renters and homeowners alike. In contrast to property taxes, individuals can control the goods they choose to purchase and the resulting sales taxes – and those purchases are only taxed once instead of every year. This proposal, paired with the property tax growth cap of 3.5%, will ensure this property tax relief is not just attainable but sustainable. Our Republican leaders have made clear their commitment to delivering property tax relief for Texans.”
