Property Tax Proposal Substantially and Sustainably Drives Down Property Tax Burden

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

“For years, Texans have carried the heavy burden of skyrocketing property taxes. Republican leadership’s proposal, paired with the growth rate cap, not only substantially eases that burden, it makes it sustainable for years to come. By driving down property tax and utilizing a consumption tax, Texans would no longer be forced to become tenants of their own property – uncertain whether they can afford their next property tax payment. This proposal is more transparent and makes progress toward ensuring no Texan is taxed out of their home.”
