Added November 4, 1930:

All land mentioned in Sections 11, 12 and 15 of Article VII, of the Constitution of the State of Texas, now belonging to the University of Texas shall be subject to the taxation for county purposes to the same extent as lands privately owned; provided they shall be rendered for taxation upon values fixed by the State Tax Board; and providing that the State shall remit annually to each of the counties in which said lands are located an amount equal to the tax imposed upon said land for county purposes.

Editor Comments

In 1934, voters rejected a constitutional amendment that required the lands governed by this section to be taxed for school district purposes in the same manner provided for county purposes.
