Realtor Commission - Flat dollar amount* - If the commission is a flat dollar amount (i.e. $6,000), enter that amount on line 15. This choice will override both percentage calculations. The split-commission calculation will override the straight commission calculation.
Seller Cost Contribution* - If the seller is paying a flat dollar amount toward the buyer's closing costs, enter the cost in the box on line 20. The cost will override the percentage calculation.

How are property taxes prorated in Texas?

Property taxes in Texas are paid in arrears. It's like the Federal income taxes, you pay for the previous year. The entire tax bill for the previous year is payable in January. Use the proration calculator to estimate the property taxes and homeowners' association for the seller and home buyer.

If the property is sold on July 1st, the seller will reimburse the buyer for 6 months of taxes (January 1st to June 30th) that they incurred while living in the home.

Are there transfer, recordation, mortgage, or excise taxes when a home is sold?

Texas does not charge any form of transfer or mortgage tax on residential sales.
