Half Payment Property Tax Deadline

Wendy Burgess, Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector, reminds Tarrant County taxpayers that they have an option when paying property taxes.


Taxpayers may pay their current year property taxes in two equal installments. In order to qualify for this half payment option, taxpayers must pay one half of the total property taxes owed by November 30, 2022.


If a taxpayer makes a qualifying and timely first installment payment, the second payment is due by June 30, 2023.  No penalty or interest will accrue on the second half until after June 30, 2023.


The Tarrant County Tax Office began mailing property tax statements in early October.  By now, all taxpayers should have received their statement. Failure to receive a notice does not impact the validity of the tax or penalty and interest imposed.


If a statement hasn’t been received, one can be printed from our new payment portal at https://taxonline.tarrantcounty.com/etax/, or email taxoffice@tarrantcountytx.gov to request one.  Sign up for Paperless Billing on our Property Tax page and have future statements delivered electronically to your email.


If taxpayers do not choose the half payment option, the deadline is January 31, 2023, to pay the full amount of taxes to avoid penalty and interest.  Partial payments are accepted at any time after the statements have been mailed.


Payments can be made in person at any of the eight Tax Office locations.  Operating hours are 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.. Electronic checks and credit cards are accepted over the internet at our new payment portal or by phone at 817-884-1110.  There is no additional fee for e-checks.  There is a fee for the use of debit and credit cards payable directly to the card provider.  We highly encourage feeless payment by e-check to avert any potential issues with a physical check while in transit to our office.


Contact us with questions at 817-884-1100 or by email at taxoffice@tarrantcountytx.gov.
