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 can split their property taxes into two payments but they must pay at least one-half of the property taxes by Nov. 30, 2019. With the deadline falling on a Saturday, the deadline has been extended to Dec.2, 2019).
The remaining balance will be due by June 30, 2020. No penalty and interest will accrue on the second half until after June 30.
The Tarrant County Tax Office mailed property tax statements in early October. By now, all taxpayers should have received their statement.
If a statement hasn’t been received, it can be printed from our website at www.tarrantcounty.com or contact our Customer Service at 817-884-1100 to request one. Failure to receive a notice does not impact the validity of the tax or penalty and interest imposed.

If taxpayers do not choose the half payment option, the deadline is Jan. 31, 2020 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.
Taxpayers with an over 65, disabled, or disabled veteran’s exemption can make four equal installment payments with the first installment due by Jan. 31, 2020. The remaining quarters are due by March 31, 2020, May 31, 2020, and July 31, 2020.
