Public Notice:

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation progresses, we are committed to serving the public.

Some of the latest developments have heightened concerns for everyone’s health and well being.

We have made the decision to keep our doors open but public access beyond the lobby is closed.

All questions requiring a staff member will be done from behind the front counter.  We will continue to monitor the spread of the virus and determine at such time whether to close our door in order to protect the public and our staff.

It is important for you to know Texas appraisal districts have been in contact with the Governor’s office and taxing unit organizations regarding this critical time and the issues that will arise.  However, there are currently no waivers or extensions pertaining to this year’s property appraisal cycle and no known plans to do so.  That said, CCAD will continue with our reappraisal for 2020 and will be sending appraisal notices in the mail.  Our target date for mailing is April 15th for all real properties and mid-May for Business Personal Property.

Through technology, we are confident that we can still offer service to the public while protecting you and our employees by using social distancing to help slow the spread of the virus. We can be reached by email,, phone or mailing.  If you need to pay your taxes or make a quarterly payment, you can within our website under “Pay Taxes Online”, CCAD’s drive thru window or use the drop box on the south side of our building.  If you use the drop box please DO NOT leave cash.

Please monitor our website at for any changes to our day to day operations.  We appreciate your patience regarding the current situation.
