Freeport Tax Exemption

A freeport exemption is a property tax exemption.
Kilgore offers the freeport exemption for various types of goods if they have been detained in the state for 175 days or less for the purpose of assembly, storage, manufacturing, processing, or fabricating.  For certain aircraft parts, a community, by official action, may extend the deadline to 730 days. 
Kilgore Independent School District, the city of Kilgore and Kilgore College all grant the exemption and represent 88% of the tax rate.
For detailed information, please visit Texas Constitution Article 8, Section 1-J. The freeport exemption is administered through the Comptroller of Public Accounts.
