Did your ancestors live in Texas? Explore this collection of more than 4.5 million Texas county tax records from 1846 to 1910, find out the amount of land and personal property they owned. Each result includes both a transcript and an image of the original document.

Tax rolls provide information on the amount of land, personal property or livestock an individual owned. They will detail the amount paid in poll, county and state taxes.
