Guide to the Taxes of Texas

Every year, the state of Texas collects billions of dollars in state taxes and fees, federal receipts and other sources of revenue. These funds are used to pay for all of the responsibilities of the state government, including the education of more than 5 million public school students and the provision of health insurance for more than 4 million low-income Texans.

A Field Guide to the Taxes of Texas (PDF) provides an overview of the major Texas state taxes. Access the guide to:

  • learn how major taxes have contributed to state revenue during the past 10 years;
  • see on one page the future revenue estimates, exemption value estimates and tax allocations; and
  • connect to other in-depth resources about state taxes and finances.
