 Get local sales tax rates right.

Numerous cities in Texas will either grow through annexations or shrink through disannexations, effective July 1, 2016. Most are growing, reflecting the “unprecedented population growth” the state has undergone since the turn of the last century.

The expansion or contraction of tax jurisdictions in any state often impacts sales and use tax rates in the affected areas.
