If you don’t receive a tax statement by November 10th, you should contact the tax office.
“It is important that a property owner contact us if they do not receive their tax statement. We need to know if a person has not received their statement to ensure the correct information is reflected in the property records,” said Michelle French, Denton County Tax Assessor-Collector.
Property owners can download a copy of their tax statement from the website or request that the statement be emailed.
All property taxes must be paid by January 31, 2016 to avoid penalties and interest. The Tax Assessor-Collector is restricted from waiving or reducing penalty and interest assessed on a delinquent tax.
The Denton County Tax Office offers numerous options to pay property taxes including online using credit/debit card, regular mail, by phone (1-866-549-1010), night drop box, bank bill pay, e-check, ACH, wire, or in person.
Payments are accepted at any of the five tax office locations in Denton County. For more information on payment options, escrow payment agreements or electronic tax statements visit the tax office website or call 940-349-3500.
Property owners wishing to pay online may pay by credit card or e-check. The convenience fee to pay by debit or credit card is 2.35% and e-checks are free. To pay online, go to http://tax.dentoncounty.com and select ‘Make Tax Payments’.
A property owner may also escrow their taxes for the following year. The escrow agreement allows a taxpayer to pay toward their taxes each month in preparation for the following year taxes.
