The Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office will offer extended hours at all locations and branches to ensure taxpayers can pay their bills on time.
“After positive response last year and good feedback, I am again offering this service to assist taxpayers who might have trouble getting off work in time,” Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector Mike Sullivan said.
His office will be accepting customers later into the evening on Jan. 30 and Feb. 2 from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Property tax bills are due by Feb. 2. On Feb. 3 unpaid accounts will be considered delinquent and a 7 percent penalty and interest will be added to the amount due.
“I will have 227 staff members at 16 branches ready to answer questions and process requests. It’s my goal to create the very best customer service experience possible,” Sullivan said.
Taxpayers who wish to pay their property taxes can do so by mail, by phone (713-274-2273), online at www.hctax.net or in person at any Tax Assessor-Collector’s branch offices throughout Harris County.
“If you have any questions, please contact my office by phone or email. My office number is 713-274-8000, and email is firstname.lastname@example.org” Sullivan added.
The Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office Property Tax Division maintains approximately 1.5 million tax accounts and collects $5.6 billion of property taxes for 70 taxing entities.
