General Schedule (GS) Payscale in Texas for 2022

Click any county to view locality pay tables

The General Schedule (GS) payscale is the federal government payscale used to determine the salaries of over 70% of federal civilian employees.

Under the GS payscale, an employee's base pay depends on two factors - the GS Paygrade of their job, and the Paygrade Step they have achieved (depending on seniority or performance). This base pay is then modified based on a "Locality Pay Adjustment", which adjusts the GS payscale based on cost-of-living in different areas within the United States.

Texas has one or more Locality Pay Adjustment areas with special locality pay adjustment rates. This page lists the locality-adjusted yearly GS pay scales for each area, with starting pay for a GS-1 broken down by county in the interactive map. For a detailed calculation of your pay as a GS employee in Texas, see our General Schedule Pay Calculator.

The HOUSTON-THE WOODLANDS, TX General Schedule locality region applies to government employees who work in Houston and surrounding areas. General Schedule employees who work within this region are paid 33.96% more than the GS base pay rates to account for local cost of living.
