Taxpayers who wish to enter into a payment
agreement may complete the Online Payment Agreement application (OPA).
The payment agreement is an
installment plan for the payment of tax, penalties, interest, and, if applicable, court cost, fees and
attorney fees. As provided by subsections (a) and (c) of Section 33.01 of the Texas Property Tax Code,
penalties and interest accrue on the unpaid balance during the period of the installment agreement.

By law, a property owner’s execution of an installment agreement is an irrevocable
admission of liability for all taxes, penalties and interest due.

... pay in full within 12 months on real estate properties.
... pay in full within 6 months on business personal properties.
... remain in good standing on any other accounts showing current or delinquent

Tax Office representative.
In the event that a property owner does not adhere to the payment agreement,
a suit may be filed and property may be seized and sold. In specific terms, these actions may be
taken if the property owner...
... fails to make a payment as required by the agreement.
... fails to pay other property taxes when due as required by the collector.
... fails to meet any other condition of the agreement.
If other taxing units (that have claims for delinquent taxes against the same
properties) file suit to foreclose their tax lien, the Travis County Tax Office is obligated to join that suit.
Payments will be applied to delinquent accounts as determined by the Travis County Tax Office.
