Tax Office News to Use

  • Property Tax Statements
    The Tarrant County Tax Office begins mailing property tax statements the first week in October of each year.  Check the back of the statement for the required comparison of taxes over time.  Recent changes include the addition of a comparison of tax rates over time.

  • Obtain a Statement
    If you did not receive a statement, please contact my office at 817-884-1100 to receive a statement.  Failure to receive a tax statement does not mean penalty and interest can be waived.

  • Property Tax Due Date
    Property tax payments are due in my office or must be postmarked by January 31.  You may pay property tax obligations by credit card or e-Check on line at, or by telephone by calling 817-884-1110.  If you wish to pay in person, you may pay downtown or at any one of the 7 Tarrant County sub courthouses.

  • Value & Exemptions
    Questions regarding property value, owner name, owner address, or exemptions must be addressed to the Tarrant Appraisal District.  Contact TAD at 817-284-0024.

  • Payment Options
    All taxpayers may elect to pay one half of their taxes prior to December 1st with the balance due prior to July 1st.  Taxpayers over the age of 65 or with a disability may pay property taxes on their homestead only in four payments of equal amounts due by January 31st, March 31st, May 31st and July 31st.

  • Vehicle Inventory Tax
    Dealers Monthly escrow notices and monthly escrow statements are due by the 10th day of each month.   If your escrow total is less than the total tax due, a statement for the remaining amount will be sent. The remaining amount due, if any, must be received by January 31, to avoid incurring penalty and interest. Annual Declarations from dealers are due by January 31. The Tax Office will mail dealer declarations and tax rate letters in December.

  • Rendition Penalty
    For business personal property tax accounts, the law now requires that a 10% rendition penalty be assessed and collected where the owner fails to render values on a timely basis.  If you have any questions about this penalty, please contact the Tarrant Appraisal District at 817-284-0024. TAD is also responsible for questions concerning value, owner name, owner address or exemptions.

  • Motor Vehicle Registration Renewal
    You do not need a renewal notice to renew your motor vehicle registration in person at any of our 8 Tax Office locations.  You must know your license plate number or the vehicle identification number and be sure to bring current proof of insurance.   Subcontract locations such as grocery stores do require a renewal notice and you can only renew your registration if it is current or past due by no more than one month. A list of subcontract locations can be accessed on our web site,  Proof of current insurance is required of all renewals.

  • Presumptive Value for Motor Vehicle Sales
    Beginning on October 1, 2006, the sales price of motor vehicle transactions between private parties (not dealer sales) will be compared to a nationally recognized database of recent auto sales in Texas.  For the purpose of calculating sales tax, the transaction price must be greater than 80% of the database sales price.  Otherwise the database price will be used to calculate sales tax.  Private parties may challenge the standard presumptive value by obtaining an appraisal from a licensed dealer or insurance adjuster within 30 days of the date of sale.

  • Deed Cards on Line
    Digital images of the historic real estate deed cards are available online.  The deed cards are the records that existed before the Tarrant Appraisal District took over appraising Tarrant County property.  These cards are available online with no fee for access.
