How much will the average NRH homeowner pay in city property tax this year?

In 2018, the average NRH home has a taxable value of about $184,000. At the tax rate of $0.585 per $100 property valuation, the city tax bill for this home will be $1,076 annually or $89.67 per month. 


As a reminder, the taxable value of your home is significantly less than the market value of your home, due to appraisal caps and the exemptions offered by the city. 

The Market Value is the amount the Tarrant County Appraisal District believes your home is currently worth. 

The Appraised Value is the value of your home after state-mandated limitations on value increases for residential homesteads is factored in. This value is set by the Tarrant County Appraisal District. In Texas the appraised value of a homestead may increase no more than 10% per year. 

The Taxable Value is the Appraised Value minus Exemptions. The tax rate is applied to the Taxable Value to determine your tax bill.  

To lower your home's taxable value and your tax bill, the City of North Richland Hills provides the following exemptions:

  • 15% homestead exemption;
  • $36,000 exemption for senior citizens (65 and older) and disabled residents;
  • Senior and disabled tax ceiling (also known as tax freeze).
