The following schedules present detail information regarding Harris County debt obligations that are secured by a pledge of property taxes. The schedules include Harris County Toll Road Authority (HCTRA) unlimited tax supported bonds even though a tax rate has never been set for the bonds – they have always been paid from Toll Road revenues. Also included are Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) bonds that are paid from the County’s Hotel Occupancy tax. These bonds also do not have a tax rate set for them.

Follow this link to the debt summary by issue including HCTRA revenue bonds, which are not tax supported, and Port of Houston Authority (PoHA) bonds, which are not Harris County obligations, although the County Commissioners Court is responsible for setting the tax rate for the Port bonds.
