Texas has a long history as being a low tax, business-friendly state. It also has a wealth of natural resources, a common border with Mexico, one of the U.S.’s largest trading partners, and a growing consumer base in a nation where consumers fuel 70 percent of economic growth.

Because Texas has a comparably low per-capita tax rate (no state income tax or statewide property tax), both Lindale and Smith County are quite attractive from a tax perspective.

Local Taxes

Property Taxes:  Texas has no statewide ad-valorem property tax. Local governments and special taxing districts levy property taxes on real and tangible personal property. All property is appraised at full-market value, and taxes are assessed by local county assessors on 100% of appraised value
