Understanding Your Property Value Notice

Annual property value notices are mailed to all Tarrant County homeowners each April. If you need help understanding your notice, please review this information. It’s important to remember that the Taxable Value is the number used to calculate your tax bill, NOT the Market Value. 

Annual Property Tax Bill 

Property tax bills are mailed to property owners in October of each year. The last day to pay taxes without penalty and interest is January 31. A resident's overall property tax bill includes taxes assessed by the city, school district, county, county hospital district and county college district. More than half of your property tax bill is paid to the school district, with about 22% going to the city. Each jurisdiction sets their tax rate annually, in conjunction with the adoption of their annual budget.
