Texas has one of the highest property tax burdens in the country. People are literally being taxed out of their homes. Our current system of property tax means that you never truly own your home. You may spend a lifetime paying off your mortgage, only to lose your home in retirement due to skyrocketing property taxes.
A constitutional amendment that places property taxes on a “path to zero” should be proposed and voted on by every Texan. Secondly, a stronger cap on state spending that ensures public schools are prioritized and fully funded will phase out the current property tax system.
