Two Denton County tax offices closed Tuesday due to COVID-related staffing shortages, according to the county.
The tax office in Cross Roads and the one in west Flower Mound, located in the Denton County Southwest Courthouse in Canyon Falls, have been closed as the Omicron variant surge continues to cause staffing shortages in the area.
“We’re experiencing the same thing so many other places are, I just don’t have enough people to go around,” said Michelle French, Denton County tax assessor/collector. “It was a very difficult decision to close down a couple offices.”
French said if all goes well, the Flower Mound office could open on Monday, and she hopes to reopen the Cross Roads office by mid- to late February.
