As in other states, individuals who are considering starting their own business in Texas should know they will need to pay several taxes in order to legally operate. Determining business taxes is an important facet of creating a business because individuals must find out if their finances can settle the taxes required of them. Below are the taxes required to run a business in Texas:

  • Federal taxes that are required by the IRS
  • State taxes that are required by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts for the benefit of the state
  • Local taxes or business inventory taxes required by the local County Appraisal District where the business is operating
  • Unemployment taxes required by the Texas Workforce Commission
