Sugar Land Property Taxes

Sugar Land Property Taxes

Sugar Land Property Taxes–Unfortunately, property taxes in Texas are among the highest in the country. But before you panic, just remember that we don’t have a state income tax in Texas…so one sort of offsets the other. You can read more about Texas property taxes so you are well-informed.

In addition, each Sugar Land subdivision (and there are over 200!) has different property tax rates…and they can change from year to year. Subdivisions in our newest neighborhoods, like Telfair and Riverstone, tend to have the highest property tax rates (3.2 to 3.5) and subdivisions in our older neighborhoods, like Sugar Creek or Sugar Mill, tend to have the lowest tax rates (2.2 to 2.8). One thing I like to point out though…our newer homes tend to be much more energy-efficient than our older homes; so you will save money in energy costs when you buy a newer home. That may help partially offset the higher taxes.

There are tax benefits and other benefits in owning your own home (which can make up for the high property taxes). Please read The Benefits of Home Ownership to learn more. 

To get up-to-date property tax rates, search for the subdivision (or the neighborhood name) below. When you view a neighborhood page, look at the “Subdivision Tax Rates” section and add up the five or six different tax types (city, school, drainage, levee, etc.) to determine the overall tax rate for the subdivision.

  1. I have been living in Telfair for many years. The tax rate for Telfair subdivision comes out to be 4.29% if you sum all the sub-division tax rates, which is obviously not correct. So, what am I missing or doing wrong?

    Please note there is really no WiFi access in Telfair (that was just sales pitch we were given when we bought!).

    Your website is pretty good and relocation guide is thorough. I am looking to upgrade to a bigger home and that is the reason for research.

    Regards

    • You are adding all three MUD rates when you should only add one.
