All eight Tarrant County Tax Office locations and all seven Dallas County Tax Office locations are open Monday–Friday, 8 am-4:30 pm.
Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector Wendy Burgess says that the offices are open to assist taxpayers with their property tax payments, but they encourage taxpayers to pay online, and do it ahead of time to avoid the last-minute rush.
“As online systems become heavily used in the last hour of the day, we recommend you start the online process earlier in the month to avoid complications and not waiting until January 31," Burgess says. "Please plan around inclement weather and other emergencies if you intend to pay in person.”
There is no provision in the Tax Code for a delayed payment or extended due date due to inclement weather conditions or other emergencies.
