About the Appraisal District and Tax Assessor-Collector Directories
The information in these directories is reported by appraisal districts and county tax assessor-collectors. The directory is updated periodically.
Please direct questions or changes by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Information Services Team at 1-800-252-9121, enter "2" to access the menu, then press "1" to contact the team. You can also mail questions or changes to P.O. Box 13528, Austin, Texas 78711-3528.
The appraisal district directory lists the chief appraiser, taxing units, and other appraisal district information. Your appraisal district can answer questions about property values, exemptions, agricultural appraisal, and protests to the appraisal review board.
The tax assessor-collector directory lists the tax assessor-collector, the consolidated taxing units served, and other tax office information. Your tax assessor-collector office can answer questions about taxes due, taxes paid and other information related to paying property taxes. If a taxing unit is in a county and is not listed as a consolidated collection, you need to contact the individual taxing unit.
Numerical Coding System
Each taxing unit has a unique numerical code, consisting of eight numbers. For example:
001-902-02 Cayuga Independent School District
001 - Refers to the county in which the taxing unit is located; in this case, Anderson County (001).
902 - Refers to the taxing unit’s unique identifying number; also called "unit identifier".
02 - Refers to the type of taxing unit, i.e. city, school, county, water district; in this case, a school district.
