Interesting Texas Law: Dirty Deeds

Texas has adopted an interesting new law that allows Texas Clerks to require photo identification whenever anyone tries to file paperwork changing a property’s ownership. The new law requires clerks to reject paperwork if a person refuses to show their identification. The new law took effect on June 9, 2023.

The new law is the result of a “Dirty Deeds” investigation by WFAA (a television station licensed to Dallas, Texas).
