“All eight of the Tarrant County Tax Office locations are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. C.S.T. to assist taxpayers with their property tax payments; however, we encourage taxpayers to pay online whenever possible to avoid the crowds and possible Covid exposure,” said Wendy Burgess, Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector. “As online systems become heavily used in the last hours of the day, we recommend you start the online process earlier in the month to avoid complications and not waiting until January 31.
