The Tax Assessor-Collector is elected for a four-year term. The Tax Assessor-Collector
is the constitutional office directed to assess and collect all ad valorem tax accounts
as identified and valued by the Wood County Central Appraisal District.
The major tax duty of the assessor-collector, who collects property taxes, is the
assessment (calculation) of taxes on each property in the county and collection
of that tax as established by the Constitution and the State Property Tax Code.
In addition, as an agent of the Texas Department of Transportation, the assessor-collector
is responsible for the registration and licensing of motor vehicles owned by residents
of the county.

If you have an over 65 or DP exemption you may qualify for a Quarter Pay. The payment is divided into four equal payments. The First payment MUST be made by Jan. 31. The 2nd payment is due in March, the 3rd payment is due in May and the last payment is due in July. Penalties do apply if payments are made after the due dates. Mark your calendar!
Just a note….we send second notices in March and May and people in a Quarter Pay will receive one, but just let it be a reminder that your next payment is due.
