Warning: As described in the note above, some of these Houston zip codes may be subject to a different sales tax rate due to the fact that Houston contains sixteen different sales tax jurisdictions.

There are approximately 1,521,180 people living in the Houston area. Remember that zip code boundaries don't always match up with political boundaries (like Houston or Harris County), so you shouldn't always rely on something as imprecise as zip codes to determine the sales tax rates at a given address.
