Second Half Payment Property Tax Deadline


Wendy Burgess, Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector, reminds Tarrant County taxpayers of the second half payment deadline.

Property taxpayers who chose to pay half of their 2023 property taxes in November must make their second half payment by July 1, 2024. The due date was extended as required by Section 1.06 of the Texas Property Tax Code.

This penalty-and-interest-free option is available to those who already made the first half payment on their property tax account by November 30, 2023. Accounts not paid by July 1, 2024, will incur a 12 percent penalty and a one percent interest charge as outlined in Texas Property Tax Code. Interest continues to accrue one percent per month thereafter until paid. More information about Penalty and Interest Rates can be found on the Tax Office website.

Payments may be made by using one of the following options:

  • Online: Select the PAY NOW button to enter our newly designed payment portal from our website. Online payments must be completed no later than 11:59 p.m. Central Standard Time on July 1, 2024, to avoid penalty and interest.
  • Phone: 817-884-1110 for Customer Service Representative Payments
    • Monday-Friday: 7 a.m. – 12 a.m. midnight C.S.T.
    • Saturday-Sunday: 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. C.S.T.

  • Mail: Checks/cashier checks/money orders are accepted by mail and must be postmarked and received by the USPS on or before July 1, 2024. We highly suggest taking any payments to be mailed inside a USPS facility, having it hand stamped by the staff, or deposited into a mail receptacle inside the building.
