About Your Tax Statement
The 2012 tax statements were mailed October 1, 2012. If you have an escrow with your lender, the lender should request the tax statement for payment. All other statements will be sent to the property owner. If you would like a copy of your tax statement, you may print one off this website (see above). You may also call our office and we can mail, email or fax a tax statement to you. If you receive a tax statement and you have an escrow with your lender, please contact your lender.
The 2012 tax statement covers taxes from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. Payment is due upon receipt and is due no later than January 31, 2013. A postmark of January 31, 2013 is acceptable. Payments postmarked after January 31st will be assessed penalty and interest. A metered date is NOT considered a postmark.
We suggest you have the post office hand stamp the date on your envelope to guarantee a January postmark. The same policy applies to each month thereafter.
All applications for exemptions may be obtained from the Dallas Central Appraisal District by calling (214) 631-0910 or online at their website www.dallascad.org. You may apply for
various exemptions: homestead, over-65, disability, disabled veteran, etc. Please contact
them for information.
If you have a disability exemption or an over-65 exemption for 2012, you are eligible to pay your taxes in installments without penalty and interest, provided your payments are made on time. Please call our office for more information (469) 593-0500. We must have a signed contract and your first payment no later than January 31, 2013. Please contact us as soon as possible.
