Traditional Finances

Harris County is committed to transparency in every aspect of its operations and believes that financial transparency and accountability are critical components of good stewardship of taxpayer resources. It is our mission to be an independent and progressive organization that presents accurate, timely, understandable, and readily accessible information for the citizens of Harris County.

Through its “Transparency Star” program, The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts recognizes local governments across Texas for going above and beyond in their transparency efforts. This is accomplished by providing citizens with clear and meaningful financial information not only by posting financial documents, but also through summaries, visualizations, downloadable data, and other relevant information.

The per capita figures are based on the County’s 2022 estimated population of 4,858,883.
