Property tax prepayment

Travis county offers several convenient ways to prepay your taxes for next year. When you prepay, the money is held in an escrow account and applied to your property taxes before tax bills are mailed. Prior year taxes must be paid before you can begin escrowing payments.

Prepay using automatic withdrawal

Set up an automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account by authorizing an Automatic Clearing House (ACH) debit on the 5th day of each month. This process requires a signed contract that includes banking information such as an account number and routing number. Request a copy of the contract and an estimate of your proposed monthly payments by This email address is being protected from spambots.
