Taxes

Payments

Tax statements are mailed on October 1st and are due upon receipt. However, you may pay by January 31 to avoid penalty and interest charges.

We do not accept partial payments unless you are 65 years of age or older, or receiving the tax disability exemption. Please see the information below for those taxpayers. If you owe delinquent taxes and would like to set up an installment payment plan, you may contact our law firm at 972-278-8282.

For detailed information about how to pay your taxes, visit the property tax payment information page.

Installment payments

If you have a disabled person’s exemption, an over-65 exemption or a disabled veteran exemption for 2016, you are eligible to pay your taxes in 4 equal installments without penalty and interest, provided you have a signed agreement on file, make your first payment by January 31, 2017, and make your remaining payments on time. Please call the GISD Tax Office at 972-494-8570 for more information as soon as possible.

About your tax statement

The 2016 year tax statements will be mailed on October 1st. If you have a mortgage escrow account with your lender, the lender should request the tax statement for payment. All other statements will be sent directly to the property owner. You may print a tax statement if you visit https://texaspayments.com/Home/AccountSearch?officeId=057909 and follow the instructions, or you can call the tax office and we will mail or fax a tax statement to you. If you receive a tax statement that should be paid by your mortgage lender, please contact your lender directly.

The 2016 tax statement covers taxes from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016. Payment is due upon receipt and must be paid no later than January 31, 2017 to avoid penalty and interest charges. A United States Postal Service postmark is acceptable. However, a metered date is NOT considered a postmark. Payments postmarked after January 31, 2017 will be assessed penalty and interest pursuant to State law.

We suggest that you have the Post Office hand stamp the date on your envelope to guarantee a January postmark. This same policy applies to each month thereafter.

Exemptions

All applications for exemptions may be obtained from the Dallas Central Appraisal District by calling (214) 631-0910 or visit www.dcad.org. You may apply for various exemptions such as: homestead, over- 65, disabled person, disabled veteran, etc. Please contact the DCAD for more information.
