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.
