The most simple is the fact the State and local governments ignore the Texas Constitution. When it comes to Property Tax the Constitution States, all property must be taxed equally and uniformly. [Texas Constitution Article VIII, Section 1(a)] No single property or type of property should be taxed more than its fair market value. [Texas Constitution Article VIII, Section 20] We all know that both of these are not followed. To little things like charging extra for Credit Card use. In Texas, a business can not penalize you for paying with a credit card. Businesses that add a surcharge to those who pay by credit card might be violating provisions of the Texas Finance Code. However, businesses can discount the regular retail price of an item for consumers who pay cash. If you believe a business is charging extra for credit card purchases, please a file a
consumer complaint with The Comptroller's Office. Credit card fees can be charged by government entities, such as for the payment of property taxes or other fees required by government agencies. As Comptroller I will fix that, immediately the
State of Texas will stop charging a Credit Card processing fee as a courtesy and to lead by example.
