    Houston, Texas is the county seat of Harris county, Texas

    with houston being the municipality, and a government system somewhat independent of the County.

    Counties typically have jurisdiction over smaller cities within the county as well as unincorporated areas of the county.

    So the answer is:

    Houston is in Harris County, Texas

    Houston is the County Seat of Harris County, Texas.
