Here’s a note from Ann Harris Bennett, our Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar.
I just wanted to remind you that due to the “Stay at Home Work Safe” order, the Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar office continues to be closed for in-person transactions; however, we continue to work hard for you and the residents of Harris County.
>> Vehicle Registration
Note: Governor Abbott granted a temporary extension to obtain initial registration, renewal of registration, and renewal of a permanent disabled parking placard.
>> Harris County Property Taxes
In hopes to help ease property owners’ burdens during this critical time, I have announced a three-month extension of all 12-month delinquent property tax payments.
Questions and payments over the phone at 713-274-2273
In addition, the office will be conducting virtual property tax workshops to help you learn: how the property tax system works, how exemptions save you money, how to protest your property taxes, how your property taxes are calculated and options for avoiding delinquent taxes. Our first workshop was last Tuesday, and it was a complete success. Stay tune for our next virtual workshop.
>> Voter Registration
While VDVR trainings and in-person voter registrations are on hold, we are encouraging folks to use our online services to register to vote and/or to update their voting registration address.
1. You can fill out an application online, print it and mail it
2. You can request a pre-postaged paid application.
For more information, we have created a COVID19 list of FAQs for all three divisions to help you complete your necessary transactions while the Tax Office is closed.
