Are Property Taxes Legal?
Are Property taxes legal? To be honest? NO TAX is “legal.” When our country was founded, there was no such thing as property tax, income tax or sales tax. The 16th amendment to the Constitution added in 1909, made it legal for the government to levy taxes. If you are facing a tax lien foreclosure this document will work great for your situation.
Now Just About Everything Is Taxed:
But now, just about everything is taxed. So, while many have argued in various courts that taxes are illegal and should not be paid, they have all lost. The Government, through our taxes, has hundreds of lawyers to go to court to argue against you should you challenge any tax laws. You, on the other hand, have to PAY lawyers to argue your case. So it is likely you will run out of money to pay your attorney long before the government runs out of money to pay theirs. In which case, you lose.

Property Taxes Texas:
This information is what you will find when you Google property Tax Texas. The bold print is the double talk in the information that is confusing and just doesn’t make sense. At the end of the day, there is no statute mandating homeowners must file their property deed in the county recorder’s office.
There Is No Law Mandating Property Owners Must File Their Deed With The State:
Keep in mind the issues of legal tax collection is not your argument here. Your argument is there is no law that mandates property owners must file their property deed in the county recorder’s office! Without a law mandating you have to file your property deed in the county recorder’s office, you can choose not to file it there. This will avoid the tax collection issues altogether because the property taxes are in initiated by the filing of the deed in the county recorder’s office.
Our property tax lawsuit package demands you be returned your property deed and the county to erase any history of your deed in their records. Remember until the State can prove there is a law mandating you have to file your property deed in their county recorder’s office they are liable for damages.
As damages, you should start by demanding the deed to your property be returned to you and all evidence of it erased from the County records. I would also demand to have all of the property taxes you have paid over the years be returned with interest, and as punitive damages, you should demand whatever you need to punish the players for deceiving you.
Property Tax Double Talk!
The information below was copied from Google after searching property taxes Texas. The information shows the double talk as they try and make what is illegal legal,
PROPERTY TAX SYSTEM BASICS
Property taxes are local taxes that provide the largest source of money local governments use to pay for schools, streets, roads, police, fire protection, and many other services. Texas law establishes the process followed by local officials in determining the value for the property, ensuring that values are equal and uniform, setting tax rates and collecting taxes.
Texas has no state property tax. The Texas Constitution and statutory law authorized local governments to collect the tax. (what tax collection law are they referencing?)
The state does not set tax rates, collect taxes or settle disputes between you and your local governments. (The State Is the local government)

Property Tax Administration in Texas:
Property taxes – also called ad valorem taxes (An ad valorem tax is a tax based on the assessed value of an item) – are locally assessed. See: 1 Tex. Const. art. VIII §1-e
Texas does not have a state property tax. See Tex. Const. art. VIII §1-e
Local appraisal districts appraise and value property located in the county and local taxing units set tax rates and collect property taxes based on those values. See: Tex. Tax Code §§6.01(b) and 6.23(a) and Tex. Tax Code ch. 26
Texas law allows the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts to provide technical assistance to local governments and taxpayers on property tax issues but does not grant jurisdiction to intervene in local tax matters. See: 4 Tex. Tax Code §§5.041(f) and 5.08
Did you notice how we jumped from See: 1 Tex. Const. art. VIII §1-e, the Constitution straight to the Tex. Tax Code §§6.01(b). The tax imposed under this chapter extends to the limits of the United States Constitution and the federal law adopted under the United States Constitution.
This double talk does not mention the law requiring property owners to file their property deed in the county recorder’s office. These two articles clearly state Texas had no State Property Tax, so what is the Tax Code referencing?
