Texas Tax Laws

Federal, state, and local governments all collect taxes in a variety of ways. State revenues are comprised of property taxes, sales tax, and certain taxes on businesses. Additionally, states levy extra taxes on items such as liquor, tobacco products, and gasoline. In Texas, for example, gasoline is taxed at 20 cents per gallon, cigarettes are taxed at roughly $2.44 per pack, and games of bingo incur a tax equal to 3 percent of the facility rental. Taxes allow Texas and other states to provide essential services and maintain order. Click on a link below to learn more about Texas tax laws.
