Texas also implements a 6.25% sales tax on most goods besides non-prepared food, prescription and non-prescription drugs. Like most states, towns and counties have the ability to implement an additional sales tax which in Texas means that the potential sales tax rate can be as high as 8.25%.

On the website you can also take a look at what’s new concerning tax law and how and when you should file. Like most states, Texas encourages you to file online if you can as it saves money and time for people on both sides of the process all the while saving massive amounts of paper from being needlessly used up.
