  • Late Payment: Section 23.122 (o) An owner who fails to remit unit property taxes due as required by this section shall pay a penalty of 5% of the amount due. If the amount is not paid within 10 days after the due date, the owner shall pay an additional penalty of 5% of the amount due.
  • Late Statement: Section 23.122 (n) In addition to other penalties provided by law, a dealer who fails to file or fails to timely file a statement as required by this section shall forfeit a penalty. A tax lien attaches to the dealer's business personal property to secure payment of the penalty. A penalty forfeited under this subsection is $500 for each month or part of a month in which a statement is not filed or timely filed after it is due.
